The beloved PÄSSI (ram) took shape on Kaija’s workbench back in 1973. And what could time ever do to something as timeless as this?
Pässi was born as the symbol of Finnish perseverance "sisu". But it did not need perseverance to become one of the best-known design classics in Finland. Its design language was enough, the ingenious rounded softness combined with the warm hardness of wood. Each Pässi is made in Finland, passing through the hands of several skilled artisans.
Pässi can take on anything, standing proud as a sign of perseverance, with Aarikka in its heart.
According to Aarikka’s chief designer Pauliina Aarikka, the brand’s design is known for its crisp Scandinavian lines and round shapes. The brand promise, Drops of Joy, communicates the way in which Aarikka products bring people a sprinkling of happiness.
