authentic wooden cup kuksa

Authentic and handmade

Manufacturer

Our authentic kuksa are hand carved in Finnish Lapland in the respect of the Sami ancestral traditions.

They are carved in one piece from birch burr. The burr is a growth on the tree that appears as a result of stress, such as injury or illness. 🪵

Cleaning

After using your kuksa, you should not wash it with a household product but only rinse it with clear water and let it dry.

The cleaning is done on the inside of the cup with coffee and hot coffee grounds. This creates a water-repellent film and prevents the creation of cracks or staining of the wood due to certain foods.

The outside of the cup is also treated with edible linseed oil to harden the wood and make it shiny.

History

Kuksa cups were first created and used by the Sami people, an indigenous people who live in northern Europe, in Lapland.

The Sami used and still use kuksa as a vessel for drinking, eating and berry picking.🫐

Reindeer herders since time immemorial, the Sámi use reindeer horns to embellish their everyday objects like kuksa. 🦌

Karelian Masur Birch kuksa

Natural

Manufacturer

Our natural kuksa are hand carved in in Masur birch from Karelia, a region in eastern Finland.

The Masur wood appears on birch trees growing in very harsh climatic conditions with climates ranging from hot to very cold. ❄️

It is a very strong and durable wood. 🪵

Cleaning

The maintenance of a natural kuksa is identical to that of an authentic kuksa.

Indeed, the cup should be treated every 10 uses with coffee grounds and linseed oil.

The linseed oil solidifies the wood and makes it shine. And the coffee makes the wood water repellent and prevents cracking or mildew.

History

Kuksa are very present in the daily life of the Finnish people and especially those who live in Lapland.🇫🇮

Kuksa have been around for many years. They were first made by the Sami people, an indigenous people of Lapland.

These kuksa, or wooden cups, allow them to drink, eat and pick berries.🫐

They are handmade cups made of wood from Finnish forests. And sometimes they are decorated with reindeer horn. 🦌

Ecological and recyclable

Manufacturer

The Kupilka company was the first Finnish company to use green electricity for its production. 🌿

It also created a new material from the wood of Finnish forests. Thus was born Kareline, a material that is sustainable over time and can be recycled, burned or returned to the factory for reuse.♻️

Cleaning

It doesn't get much easier than maintaining your Kupilka!

You don't have to worry about the maintenance of Kupilka products because they don't require any special treatment.

They can be washed with dishwashing liquid and even be put in the dishwasher.

Also, Kupilka products dry very quickly, so you can easily put your cup in your backpack and go on an adventure.

History

Kupilka products have been around since 1996 and were created by a Finnish family concerned about the environment and the natural resources of their country.

It is important to know that the Kaasinen family, creators of Kupilka, knew and mastered the ancestral art of carving wooden cups for many years before embarking on the adventure
