The Kuksa is a special drinking cup of hunters and Laplanders in Finland. The kuksa is a hand carved drinking cup made from birch burl. Laplanders have a personal Kuksa that stays with them throughout their lifetime and has been used by Laplanders for as long as anyone can remember. They use it for everything they drink; coffee, tea, vodka and water from the stream. The cup will not hold any flavors from previous drinks.
Kuksas are made of carefully selected arctic birch burl and uniquely treated with salt. This makes them durable and long lasting while light enough to carrying a backpack or on a belt. The Kuksa is made from renewable materials and so it is a true nature product. The leather straps on these Kuksas are reindeer leather.A Kuksa is more than a drinking cup, it's a lifelong companion.
Kuksa do not require any special care. A quick rinse after use is all that it needs.
