shop news: kupilka eco camp & picnic ware …!

Fresh from Finland, KUPILKA, new eco-fabulous wares! Perfect for camping, picnicking, cottaging, hiking, etc …! We’re pleased to be the first in Canada to introduce these superb eco-functional items, now in the shop! {Classic & Shot Cups, & Cutlery Set}

KUPILKA indoor/outdoor adventure wares, made in Finland from Natural Fiber Composites biomaterial; 50% pine fiber {wood} and 50% thermoplastic {BPA-free}, developed by Puugia, the Centre for Wood Technology in Joensuu. Designed by Finnish eco-innovative architect Heikki Koivurova.

Launched in 2001 with the Classic Cup, KUPILKA means “little cup”. The word KUPILKA stems from the Finnish word for cup which is “Kuppi”. It also refers to a traditional term used by Finnish people, when folks warmed their hands with their “Kuppilka” or “little cup” by drinking hot beverages during the harsh Finnish winter.

KUPILKA products are recyclable. At the end of its life-span the product can be ground and cast again into new products, or, burned in a campfire! All KUPILKA packages & labels are made from recycled cardboard. The leather strap of KUPILKA are made from local Reindeer hide.

Natural Fiber Composites are lightweight, have a better thermal endurance and a higher durability than regular plastic. This material doesn’t require maintenance, doesn’t “absorb” smells and is insensitive to humidity as compared to regular wood. All KUPILKA products are dishwasher safe, and also suitable for engraving as gifts.
