Whether your rousing round a campfire with a spirited drink, sitting down at the picnic table for a meal, or plopping onto the couch for another binge session with a bowl of snacks, Kupilka has a dish for you.
Kupilka offers a wide variety of products in various colors all made from their own biomaterial Kareline, a natural fiber composite, which favors the use of renewable energy. The eco friendly cellulose fibers from the Finish forest are then reinforced with FDA approved polypropylene. This makes them very durable against abrasion as well as temperature. The materials used have been tested to withstand both boiling hot water as well as sub-zero conditions. All this stacks up to make Kupilka products an easy to care for and ecofriendly choice for your dinnerware.
