Ahti sees the flow of water, having observed it for eons. Despite his age, Ahti has remained mischievous and joyful, the god of water in folklore. With playfulness, he observes the world, bringing energy and power around himself, in an aura of serenity and joy, like water.
Blue water elf Ahti is wearing a grey hat. Water elves are a great piece of Finnish, handmade decoration. They stand out in centrepieces and make for great gifts for friends of Finnish handcraft.

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.
