Hi. Of all the Tonttu elf family, I have the deepest roots.I was born in the glow of candlelight a long, long time ago, and I still bring people that warm Christmas spirit for the holidays.Aarikka’s Tonttu Christmas elves are a great way to decorate your dinner table, to create a unique decorative composition on the windowsill, and – of course – to give a special treat to those who appreciate unwrapping gifts of high-quality handicrafts.
Each item in the Aarikka collection is a unique item handmade in Finland from Finnish materials. The wood is Finnish mapple that, thanks to Aarikka´s own dyeing method, acquires a beautiful, translucent sheen. The Aarikka range represents lasting beauty with a form language and quality that last from year to year.
Aarikka´s design is directed by Pauliina Aarikka, daughter of the company´s founder, Kaija Aarikka. It is famous for its clear, Scandinavian lines, round forms and use of wood as the primary material.
During the past five decades, Aarikka has not only employed its own designers, but has also commissioned works from leading Finnish designers, such as Aino Favén, Jorma Vennola, Jukka Rintala, Tuula Falck, Markku Salo, Paola Suhonen, Anna Ruohonen, Anu Leinonen, Kalle Kuusela, Elina Helenius, Kaisli Kiuru, Saija Malila and Eero Sairanen. Each designer has left his or her impression on Aarikka´s design language
