Right now, I want to proudly present you the 2nd part of my collaboration with Aarikka and announce a 2nd giveaway.

Aarikka’s past is very long and rich, present is very bright and inspiring, but future… It have never looked more promising than it does for the Spring/Summer. Here’re some of the products which will def. be a highly sought after pieces.
NAPPIKELLO (button clock)
These buttons are the original buttons from the 50´s when Aarikka company started. Mrs Kaija Aarikka was studying to be a textile designer and for her final exam work, she designed and made a wooden dress in which she carved 5 wooden buttons. Those buttons became so popular that she decided to start a business designing and making wooden buttons. In the fifties it was very popular to use such exotic woods as jacaranda, eben holz, teak, mahogany and so on in interior design. That is the reason why Kaija used those kind of brown woods in her buttons. Little by little she started to design also wooden jewelry and gift articles to the Aarikka collection. For spring 2016 collection Mrs. Paulina Aarikka have designed the Nappikello, which is going to be a part of limited edition.
PILKKU GLASS BOWLS
They are designed by Anu Penttinen. While designing these glass bowls, Anu was led by an idea that you can use the glass bowls and the lid either separately or together for serving the food, salads or for instance in the entrance room for keys and other small items.
These are very typical Aarikka shapes, round forms and beads. Candleholders are called Linna, Prinsessa and Prinssi. They are all designed by Mrs. Pauliina Arrikka.
AARIKKA ATELJEE COLLECTION
This is a changing repertoire of bold statement jewelry. Each piece is handmade and the collection is limited edition only. In this year´s collection you can see various shapes from the wild nature and the feeling from the exotic rainforests.
