An elf, clad in black, smiles under its hat, taking a deep breath. Many a time, the other elves ask why the elf wears black. The elf thinks that wearing black lets its own personality shine through and brings others closer. "I feel closer to others when the only thing between us is soft, rich darkness", the elf ponders.

Did you notice the wood grains?
Every wooden Aarikka item is unique, because every piece of wood is unique. Products are handmade, visible in them and the volume they are made in - small volumes for a need. So the small details of life are visible. Light stripes visible in the wooden pearls are made by Kaija's husband Erkki Ruokonen's unique technique, which is still used to hand-dye all wooden products in Raisio.
The guardians of harmony.
