“Tiuku”, Elf Helinä asked in a contemplative tone, blowing snow off its mitten. “Did you know that you constantly keep chiming?” Tiuku nodded, accompanied by a small tinkle: “Yes. But that way, my arrival won’t come as a surprise.” Helinä nodded and continued blowing snow off its mitten. At some point, the sun set as well.
Tiuku elf is made of wooden beads. It wears a felt cap with a small bell.

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.
