KUPILKA products have been designed by Kari Kuisma, together with a well-known Finnish architect and designer Heikki Koivurova. KUPILKA means a “little cup,” and the word stems from the Finnish word “kuppi”. It also refers to a term used by Finnish people decades ago, when men and women warmed up their hands with their “kupilka” or “little cup” by drinking hot beverages during the rough Finnish winters.

This lightweight, durable cup is perfect for carrying on a long hike or for overnight camping.

Volume: 2.1 dl/7.10 fluid oz.
Weight: 83 g/2.93 oz.
Measurements: 60 mm/2.36" tall, 93mm/ 3.66" wide and 165mm/ 6.49" long

KUPILKA products are made from Kareline® Natural Fibre Composite material. The biomaterial consists of 50% pine fiber (wood) and 50% thermoplastic.

There are numerous benefits if you compare the composite material to normal plastics. To name a few, they have better heat endurance and a better durability thanks to their stiff structure. They also allow the use of engraving techniques. If you compare the natural fiber composite to wood, the most important benefit is that the composite does not require maintenance. Also, it does not “absorb” smells, and it is insensitive to humidity.
All KUPILKA products are dishwasher safe. Microwave is not recommended.

KUPILKA products are also recyclable and can be returned to normal plastic recycling centers or ground and casted again into new products at the end of their life-span. All KUPILKA packages and label cards are made from recycled cardboard. The string of KUPILKA 5 is made from reindeer leather.

The material was developed by Puugia, the Centre for Wood Technology in Joensuu, Finland.
