”I’m Talvikaveri Hiihtäjä and my favourite sport is cross-country skiing. I enjoy the feeling of walking into a postcard, when the snowy trees are standing out against the blue sky on a winter day. As I always wear a warm scarf and a beanie, I never get cold. Just bring out those skis!”
Talvikaveri Hiihtäjä (‘Skier the Winter Pal’) is a great way to decorate your dinner table, to create a unique composition on a windowsill, or to give as gifts for lovers of high quality handicrafts, skiers and all of us who enjoy winter.
Material: Maple, birch, felt. Height 8 cm
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.

Eco-friendliness and sustainability are of the utmost importance to us. That’s why we choose only the best wood for our raw materials.
