Today we are introducing innovative Kupilka tableware, made in Finland ! Kupilka means "little cup". The word kupilka stems from the Finnish word for cup which is "Kuppi". It also refers to a term used by Finnish people decades ago, when men and women warmed up their hands with their "Kuppilka" or "little cup" by drinking hot beverages during the rough Finnish winter. All Kupilka products except of the Kupilka Cutlery were designed by managing director Kari Kuisma and well-known Finnish architect and designer Heikki Koivurova. Kupilka products are made of a Biomaterial. The Biomaterial used for Kupilka products is a Thermoplastic Natural Fiber Composites material. It is made up of 50% pine fiber (wood) and 50% plastic. If you compare it to plastic, the benefits of Natural Fiber Composites are a better heat endurance and a higher durability thanks to the stiff structure. If you compare it to wood, the benefits of Natural Fiber Composites are that it doesn't require maintenance, doesn't "absorb" smells and is insensitive to humidity. All Kupilka products are dishwasher safe ! Kupilka would make a great gift to someone who likes spending time in nature ! Voir les modèles disponibles ici !
