A traditional kuksa cup made of a Finnish eco composite material - way better than a regular plastic cup, still virtually impervious to elements. You can do anything with this except burn it or put it in the microwave. Tea spoon included.
The Kupilka 21 is one damn fine cup that not only looks nice, but has a long service life and is virtually care-free (just wash it now and then of course). It also gets a beautiful patina in use! The word Kupilka comes from Karelia and means 'favourite cup'.
When you handle the cup, it kinda feels like good old bakelite:
Our very own Kareline® natural fibre composite: Eco-friendly cellulose fibres from certified Finnish forests reinforce the material with FDA approved polypropylene used as an adhesive. (Ratio: 50% wood-based cellulose fibres + 50% thermoplastic). Products from this material age beautifully yet keeping their qualities. The development of Kareline® natural fibre composite material was initiated by Puugia, the Centre for Wood Technology in Joensuu, Finland.
The products can be recycled, incinerated for heat energy or returned to us for re-use. Kupilka® fulfils the requirements of EU No 10/2011 and 1935/2004/EC §3.
You can even send the product back to Kupilka for reuse. Essentially this only happens when you get bored with it, as the service life is virtually indefinite.
The material has a nice amount of good features:
Kupilka is a Finnish company through and through. They started to make the eco composite material products in the early 2000's using green energy. This probably gives you some idea of the values of said company. Those values correspond with ours pretty well. Made in Finland!
