Aarikka Oy is a Finnish family business established in 1954 to mastermind and manufacture design products.
Each item in the Aarikka Jewellery collection is a unique item handmade in Finland from Finnish materials. The wood is Finnish birch that, thanks to Aarikka´s own dyeing method, acquires a beautiful, translucent sheen. The Aarikka jewellery range represents lasting beauty with a form language and quality that last from year to year.
The Aarikka Home range consists of table-setting and decoration items for everyday use and special occasions. Aarikka also designs giftware and decorative items to suit the season. Many families are already third-generation collectors of the popular Christmas elves, and each Christmas a couple more cheeky fellows are added to the series.
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
