About Bushcraft Essentials
Bushcraft Essentials was started by Detlev Hoppenrath in 2012, after seeing hobo/twig stoves, and realizing their usefulness in the field, but recognizing that they were difficult to fashion on one’s own. Using materials and production facilities in Munich, Bushcraft Essentials launched their “Bushbox” model to much success, and followed up with the micro (EDC) bushbox, and a large ”XL” Bushbox.
Bushcraft Essentials considers itself a “social enterprise” - meaning that it’s overriding corporate concern is not profit maximization, but the well being of the human beings and the environment in it’s sphere. To this end, all stoves are manufactured in Munich, Germany, to the highest manufacturing specifications possible, and contain no plastics in the products or in the packaging - opting instead for cotton bags and cardboard. Decisions such as tumbling stoves in corn granulate, as opposed to polishing them were also undertaken for the well being of the local environment and employees.
Says founder and CEO Detlev Hoppenrath : "With our activities in the field of Bushcraft we associate the hope of being able to contribute to find more people to a healthy understanding of nature."
