The elves were standing at the edge of a field, looking at the bare ground. “I think the seeds were no good”, said the Camper with a wry smile on its face. The Farmer shook its head and pointed behind its back, to the open meadow. The meadow was full of flowers blooming in dozens of different colors, their strong sprouts reaching towards the sun. “There was nothing wrong with the seeds or the earth. They just needed the right conditions to thrive.”
The Farmer elf is made of two wooden beads. The elf wears a straw hat on its head and holds a hoe in its hand. Combine the Farmer elf with its other elf friends!

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.
