“Kitaristi", Leipuri (Baker) asked, “that string has been broken since midsummer. Why don’t you just change it?” Kitaristi (Guitarist) kept tapping on the body of the guitar, humming to itself. “Well, it would be easy. But the longer I wait, the better it feels to play with all the strings again”, Kitaristi replied. Leipuri looked at its friend and admitted that it may have a point.

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.
