Aarikka believe that design’s most important task is to bring joy to people’s lives. Our simple, Scandinavian design combines joy with cosiness.
Finnish nature and the forest have always provided a foundation for our design. Our products are primarily made from wood and other natural materials.
Eco-friendliness and sustainability are of the utmost importance to us. That’s why we choose only the best wood for our raw materials. The light colours and beautiful surfaces of maple and birch mean they are the best-suited for painting with bright colours. Pine on the other hand is suitable for products which seek to provide a warm atmosphere and strong surface patterns.
The majority of our jewellery is manufactured by hand in Finnish homes by employees who work from home. Our home products are assembled in Finnish work centres that support employment.
Handicraft skills are a valuable part of Finnish identity and culture. We continuously work to promote them by employing numerous Finnish craftspeople.
