Karhu F803050 – Aria 95 (Capulet Olive / Mango)Karhu
In 1916, Karhu produced skis, which were some of the first items manufactured in a small workshop located in downtown
Helsinki. There, locally sourced birch was transformed into winter forms of transport. Because the skis were of such high
quality, the Finnish army and world champions like, Harri Kirvesniemi, chose to wear Karhu on their feet. Kirvesniemi
remains part of the Karhu family as the official licensee of the Karhu ski division, which has helped shape the brand. In
welcoming the coming winter snowfall, we launch the Cross-Country Ski Pack 1 & 2.
Each colour palette is inspired by the
bright pops featured in the cross-country ski designs of the 90s and 00s.
The material selection for Aria 95s consists of a mix of pigskin suede, water repellent
nylon and breathable mesh.
The collection offers a fresh look on popular Karhu silhouettes.
The Karhu team visited the Karhu Ski Factory in Kitee, a small Finnish town in the east of Finland. Both the factory and
the Kitee Sports Centre’ outdoor facilities, the cross-country ski training location, serve as the backdrop to the photo
shoot of the Cross-Country Ski Pack.
