“Have you seen Tiuku?” Kaisa asked as it barged into the cottage, looking like it really needed to talk to Tiuku (Bell), preferably yesterday. “We’re not glued together, not even our thoughts. But if you’re quiet, you can hear a small bell chiming. You should try it sometimes”, the elf girl Tiuku said with a grin and continued its work on the lathe. “Try what?” Kaisa inquired, flicking away the wooden beads it had picked up from the floor. “Being quiet”, the elf girl said, grinning once again. And it did become quiet, as Kaisa stormed out as fast as it had come in.

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.
