"We love the history and tradition behind the use of a hand carved wooden mug which you can feel when holding the Kupilka cup in your hands, yet being made of modern eco materials you know they will be durable and able to withstand the extreme high and low temperatures of Canada's climate. The fact that you can put in the dishwasher too makes them so versatile from the outdoors to your kitchen. Kupilka has been a great addition to our store. "
