Made by Savotta

  • Most people who invest in our gear are probably also interested in how it’s made. And we also want to be as transparent as possible about this, as how we manufacture our gear is both a matter of pride and values. Our stuff is not made to be cheap, it’s made to function and endure.

  • We are a Finland based, Finnish company employing a total of (as of late 2022) approx. 140 employees at own manufacturing facilities in Karstula, Finland and Tartu, Estonia. The select few subcontractors we use are also based in Finland and Estonia, all quality control is done at our headquarters in Karstula, Finland. The vast majority of materials (fabrics, webbing, buckles etc.) we use are made in the EU, some right here in Finland, with some specialty stuff coming from Asia and the USA.

At our headquarters in Karstula, Finland we do pretty much everything. Our main offices and logistics are located here, our production facility in Karstula offers our full spectrum of manufacturing capabilities: metalworking, laser cutting, vacuum forming and of course a lot of sewing. Having all our production capabilities at our HQ offers flexibility when needed and is a fundamental necessity for our product development.

Our facility in Tartu, Estonia is used for large scale sewing of our regular textile products. Big production runs of our packs, pouches etc. are mostly sewn here as opposed to the smaller yet more numerous runs we make at our HQ in Karstula.

If you’re wondering where your specific piece of Savotta gear was made – just check the tag! These mostly say simply “Made in Finland” or “Made in Estonia”. If it says “Made in Finland & Estonia” then that means just that, the work of that product has been split up between our two facilities.
