Description

The traditional finger coffe Guksi mug is made from birch wood and has a high quality. The cup can hold up to 1,2dl and comes with a leather holder belt.

Guksi (or Finnish: kuksa; Swedish: kåsa) is a type of drinking cup traditionally duodji crafted by the Sami people of northern Scandinavia from carved birch burl. The burl is contoured to a rough shape, carefully dried to prevent the wood from cracking, then formed in accordance with the local tradition. Originally guksi, or kuksa, were widely used in Arctic areas as a personal drinking cup; a well-made guksi lasts a lifetime.
