Our story

Each single day, we are 100% committed to creating a better planet with our Uulki brand

In 2015, we started Uulki after a search for more sustainable kitchenware in our home. We were looking for authentic products that gave us a warm and honest feeling.

More wood, less plastic

During our quest, we had to conclude that a lot of kitchen and homeware is made from plastic. Plastic is problematic for our environment since it does not decompose and creates problems for animals. We wanted to create sustainable alternatives and decided to make Uulki products from wood. Wood is a warm and heartwarming material. Moreover, wood is biodegradable and decomposes after some time.

Natural and plant-based raw materials

We also noticed that a lot of plastic homeware is easily broken and thrown away. We don’t believe in a throw-away society, but want our products to last as long as possible. For this reason, we soon started to develop our own range of wood care oils and waxes. Uulki products differ from traditional care products, because they are made from natural and plant-based raw materials.

Let us inspire you with our products on the road to more sustainability!
