  • Q & A
The aarikka Helle Shoulder Bag is simply chic, yet the beauty lies in the fine details. It's crafted from high-quality, vegetable-tanned leather in a classic black hue. Helle is a messenger style bag that can be worn on the shoulder or as a crossbody with the adjustable and removable strap. Simply slide the aarikka "a" logo on the front metal clasp to lift the flap and reveal the open interior. Inside, a zipper side pocket provides safe haven for loose valuables. The cotton lining provides a pleasant pop of print called Lemmikki (Myosotis), a floral motif from aarikka founder Kaija Aarikka which dates back to the '70s. Still as fresh today, the flowers are a wonderful nod to the timeless nature of Finnish design in shades of khaki, white, and black. A detachable bag charm with a matching leather tassel and aarikka's signature wooden bead is the finishing touch on this piece of functional art.

Please note: Aarikka leather products made from vegetable tanned leather are a durable, high-quality choice. The ancient craft of vegetable tanning uses only organic materials, such as those originating from the leaves, barks and branches of trees and plants. Vegetable tanned leather preserves its durability better than the more commonly used chrome tanned leather. The use of vegetable tanning with modern production planning and recycling solutions also secures the product with a smaller ecological footprint.

Each vegetable tanned leather product is distinguished by its unique tone and natural surface markings. Small irregularities, furrows and even scars are allowed to show on the surface of vegetable tanned leather because the outer layer of the hide is not removed in vegetable tanning. The patina developed over time and the traces of moments lived are characteristic to the look and charm of vegetable tanned leather goods. Products made from vegetable tanned leather will improve in use and, when cared for properly, keep looking their best for decades to come.

Also note: The last photo shows the bag held with a custom flower strap, which is not included. This bag includes one detachable solid leather strap, which is shown in the main photo.

I was drawn to this bag because of is it's clean design lines. Unfortunately I needed to send it back - not because of design or quality - rather the bag size was simply too large for my small framed body.
