aarikka: vibrant color. coziness. joy.
It all began with buttons. And it all started with a real need: Kaija Aarikka, then a textile arts student at the Institute of Industrial Arts in Helsinki, was unable to find any buttons to go with a dress she had designed. So she made them herself. From these fun and original buttons the story quickly went on to include jewelery. And February 24, 1954 went down as the day that Aarikka was born.
Round shapes appealed to Kaija Aarikka from the very beginning. The buttons and wooden jewellery were followed by silver jewellery, candle holders, toys, gifts and home decoration products. Aarikka back then was original, bold and natural, as it is to this day. We are still inspired by round shapes as well as by the other characteristic elements in Aarikka products: vibrant colour, coziness and joy.
