“Kupilka is an old name, it goes back a long time. Even in the old days, small cups of sometimes hot, sometimes other tasty drinks were enjoyed by the campfire. When the evening came, the Kupilka, my own Kupilka was like a best friend who had time to listen… like the waves of the lake and the trees of the forest”.
The main designer of Kupilka products, i.e. dishes and knives, is industrial designer Heikki Koivurova. He is known for his down-to-earth attitude and beautiful but practical design. Kupilka products combine Finnish traditions, the latest technology and the best materials. Creating a functional and beautiful product that does not compromise on quality is the starting point of the design.
The materials of the cup are Kareline® natural fiber composite: the reinforcing material is environmentally friendly pine pulp fiber and the binder is polypropylene approved for food use. At the end of the products’ life cycle, they can be returned to plastic recycling centers, burned into heat energy in an oven or ground up for use again.
