"The Aarni backpack in natural cork with linen straps is the best purchase l've ever made: It's a handbag, backpack, design item, environmental act, durable, beautiful, practical and timeless all at once.

The philosophy behind cork products adds great additional value and that's why l also have an Aura big bag and some novelties in black cork leather on my Christmas wish list. Congratulations Katriina and thank you for caring! 💕"Customer

But most importantly, the best feature of Aarni is that it’s really lightweight!

Care Instructions

“The creation of something new starts with taking care of what is already here”


Just like any material, cork will appreciate love and care. Over time, your cork product will develop a beautiful natural patina. As time goes by, you may notice that your cork product has picked up some stains or for example some colour from your jeans.



Cork fabric is easy to clean by gently scrubbing it with a damp soft cloth and a bit of mild soap. Alternatively, you can use mild, natural baby wipes. After cleaning, allow your item to dry.
