Bushcraft Branded Kupilka Plate
Whilst the Branded Bushcraft range is mainly products that we have created, we have oft been asked if we have any branded merchandise that people can buy associated with the magazine, and so, with the launch of our online store we have carefully selected a range of products that we are happy to put our mark on...
KUPILKA products were designed by Kari Kuisma together with a well-known Finnish architect and designer Heikki Koivurova. KUPILKA means “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 harsh Finnish winters.
The manufacture of the KUPILKA products started in 2003, they are made of a Biomaterial - Thermoplastic Natural Fiber Composites material, which is made up of 50% pine fiber (wood) and 50% plastic. If you compare it to plastic, the benefits of Natural Fiber Composites fare better with heat endurance and are more durable thanks to the stiff structure. If you compare it to wood, the benefits of the 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 products are also recyclable, if you return it to the factory at the end of its life-span, the product can even be ground up and cast again into a new product. All KUPILKA packages & label cards are made from recycled cardboard.
Durable, Heat Resistant (-30°C to +100°C), Lightweight, Maintenance free, Easily cleaned, Dish-washer safe, Attractive.
