By using these birch bark containers, the consumer would discover an interesting––and perhaps counter-intuitive––truth: natural materials can be mightier than man-made ones. One might assume that stainless steel cans and plastic Tupperware were produced as superior alternatives to natural storage vessels, but consider these tree-derived items for a minute.

Part of the 'From Siberia' series of objects by Anastasiya Koshcheeva, the Tuesa containers take advantage of some impressive organic qualities of birchbark. The material keeps out moisture, it maintains temperature and it boasts antibacterial properties that protect the contents through and through. These stitched sleeves are perfect for stashing spices, grains, all sorts of food items and even ornaments. Each Tuesa is supremely functional and expresses a raw forest beauty to augment interior decor.
