nuukk

HOW IT STARTED

nuukk was founded in Berlin by Andrea Hild in 2011.What started as project of the heart while still at arts school, quickly turned into a small successful label with a focus on stationery and home decor. The illustrations for all products are created in their Kreuzberg studio.

PHILOSOPHY

Sustainability is very important to nuukk and is reflected in their products, for instance, the BPA-free bamboo tableware. nuukk products should not be just disposable products, but rather offer an added value. In addition, nuukk cooperates with a sheltered workshop which offers possibilities of education and employment for handicapped people.

 

BAMBOO TABLEWARE

The bamboo tableware has been tested in an independent laboratory and meets all the requirements set by the EU for dishes that come on contact with food.

 

Examination conditions: 2 hours at a constant 70C in two different liquids.

They tested the specific migration of

- melamine (EU limit: 0.5w/w. Our dishes: <0.1w/w)

- formaldehyde (EU limit: 15mg. Our tabelware: 0.2mg)

Examined and not detected:

bispehnol A, heavy metal, lead, cadmium, volatile organic substances, polycyclic aromatic hydrocarbons

 

Ingredients:

1. 49% bamboo fiber

2. 30% corn powder

3. 5% wood fiber

4. 15.5% food grade melamine

5. 0.5% polyamide resin 

The dishes are suitable for the dishwasher but not for the microwave. In addition, they should only be used for food and drinks up to 70C.

nuukk think that bamboo crockery is the better alternative to pure melamine dishes. Theirs also have a very low melamine content of only 16%. Their dishes comply with all EU requirements and can safely be used for children. They are also great for camping, because it is so lightweight!
