Cranberry, fenberry, bearberry...Karpalo. A cranberry by any other name would taste just as sweet. For us, however, Karpalo (Cranberry) is Aarikka at its purest: wooden and round. The tenacious Karpalo needs no introductions. This berry of the bogs has raw elemental power.
The hand-dyed Karpalo earrings are made of wooden beads, and they’re light on the ear.

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.
