Kuksa, a traditional wooden cup is made in Lapland, Finland. The birch burl is contoured to a rough shape, carefully dried to prevent the wood from cracking, then formed in accordance with the local traditions. Originally kuksas were widely used in Arctic areas as a personal drinking cup; a well-made kuksa would last a lifetime. After each use rinse your Kuksa cup with clean water and it's ready for use again. (Please note! Do not wash your Kuksa with washing-up liquid or in a dish washer.) Pure natural product.
