“Oh, how I wish that I could always just go downhill!” Pulkkailija (Sledder) elf cried out as it whizzed past. No one was quite sure what Pulkkailija even looked like. It was hard to find out because Pulkkailija was always on the move.
Pulkkailija elf is made of wooden beads and wears a red cap made of felt. The elf stands on a sled, holding a leash in its hand.

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.
Small, wooden, round. Made in Finland by hand. Aarikka's Elves are true Aarikka, everyday celebration at its finest. Collected and loved for 40 years.
