The designer of Hyti, Anne-Liis Leht is from Hiiumaa. She recharges herself and derives inspiration from walking in the natural environment of Hiiumaa – even when she is working in a studio in the northern Tallinn suburb of Kalamaja. Even the name of the brand is derived from a place in Hiiumaa – Hüti is where the first glass factory in Estonia operated in the 17th century.
The Hyti brand represents simplicity, functionality, the uniqueness of a hand-made object and the small voice that provokes the joy of recognition or surprise. In a world saturated with mass-production a master’s touch, a personal connection between an object, its creator and user has once again become valued.
