aarikka Bags & Wallets
It all began with buttons. In 1954, Kaija Aarikka, a then textile arts student at the Institute of Industrial Arts in Helsinki, started making buttons when she couldn't find any to suit her dress designs. Later, aarikka would become recognized for its jewelry, still utilizing the same round shapes and natural wooden materials. Today, aarikka design is headed by Kaija's daughter, Pauliina, and joined by a team of talented designers. The selection has expanded to include all types of home décor and fashion accessories, including beautiful bags and wallets. These lovely leather bags boast the same style and craftsmanship the Finnish brand has become known for; they are made to stand the test of time.
