The Arabia outlet is in the Factory Block, the site of the Arabia factory. The factory was established in 1873 and the manufacture of porcelain, and clay products started the following year. Arabia tableware has been popular in Finland and worldwide for generations.
The factory and surrounding buildings now form the Arabiaskus Centre, which houses the Fiskars Group facilities, design shops, including the outlet shops for Arabia and Pentik, the Aralis library and the Aalto University School of Art and Design.
The factory chimney is easily seen from Hameentie road.
The outlet shop is full of excellent bargains from Finlayson, Arabia, Iitaala, Hackman and Fiskars.
Make a day of it. Take a number 6 tram from the Helsinki station to Arabia and shop, have lunch at one of the cafes, and if you are interested in design visit the Arabia Museum. http://www.arabiahelsinki.fi
