From the times immemorial, birch bark has been used for protection from cold and moisture. It was used in making and protecting fishermen’s boats. The elastic fabric was used in making water-resistant shoes, light and decorative tableware, and containers for dry and liquid foods.

Birch bark has anti-bacterial qualities. It is a powerful anti-septic agent and a natural absorbent. It removes poisonous substances from the food. Research showed that the presence of silver ions in birch bark inhibits the growth of bacteria, and that means that products stay fresh longer. A small tues is better than any thermos. Thanks to its positive qualities, birch bark is widely utilized in traditional households.
