Kole is the only thermal flask that keeps your espresso or whisky sleek in your pocket.
The Kole is a thermal flask small enough to fit in your pocket. It’s beautiful, practical, and portable. Better insulated than your average flask and way better looking than your average thermos, the Kole is a gorgeous personal companion for your drinks, hot or cold. Fill up your Kole with your favorite espresso for your bike ride to work, or carry it in your jacket pocket for a sip of Jack, warm rum, or absolutely perfect Irish coffee. Wherever you’re headed, Kole is there to assist.
Below, see co-founder Yossi Levin explain the concept of the Kole, along with the social mission of Nisnas Industries as a whole. Kole is as much a beautiful, practical piece as it is a tool for social change.
The Kole is supremely portable, it is a personal piece that can travel with you. You can now take your drink, hot or cold, on your bike ride, commute, or a stroll in the park. The Kole is up for it. We made Kole with an extreme, almost obsessive attention to detail, a culmination of more than year of intense work with local artisans and production specialists. Even as we grow, each Kole is handmade, exquisite and individual.
The Kole is handmade from start to finish using only the highest quality materials, locally sourced and individually crafted. We use oak wood and hand crafted stainless steel for the inside of the flask, the ends, and the top cap that doubles as a cup. The Kole is a work of art made one at a time with one purpose: to be a supremely functional piece of portable art.
Choosing oak and stainless steel for production is about both practicality and tradition.
Oak, a longstanding staple of the wine and whiskey trade, made it an easy choice because of its texture, insulating qualities, and for the feel of the piece as it ages. Oak becomes more dense and beautiful over time, and the Kole will look and feel more textured and solid with use.
Stainless steel is critical to the Kole, providing both an important practical use (as it is corrosion resistant) and aesthetic value, as it gains a unique patina with striking textures over time.
We made the Kole slim and sturdy because we set out to make a piece that is a part of your everyday carry. The Kole makes carrying your espresso or spirits like carrying your wallet, easy and comfortable.
The Kole holds the equivalent of four espresso shots, or two and a half pours into your stainless steel cap.
Want more Kole? We thought you might. That’s why we’ve included a special two-pack deal for Kickstarter backers. Get a backup Kole for you, or an extra for a friend, for $160.
Every Kole comes with a stainless steel funnel for mess-less filling, and a cap that doubles as a cup for discreet and convenient sipping. We hand polish it to a silky finish and seal it with several coats of lacquer. In short, Kole is made to last absolutely forever.
We know you’re eager to get your hands on the Kole, and we’re eager to give it to you. We’re prepared to ship anywhere in the world by Christmas. Between now and then, we’ll be hard at work making sure every last detail is perfect.
For more than six years, Nisnas Industries has been active in creating the absolute best commuter gear. We have made leather bags and wood gear for your bike that is both functional and supremely beautiful. We do this with community in mind and our past two Kickstarters have been extremely community focused, tools to create social change in the Arab-Israeli conflict.
This time we are aiming straight at a macro-level change that needs to happen in Israel to bring on long lasting real social change with human rights and civic engagement at the center of it. We're setting aside a very large chunk of our proceeds to partner with the Social Economic Academy in Israel to create a program that would use the power of unions to create large scale political change. To tackle income inequality and change Israel from within through democratic processes, to bring in new leadership that will see human lives and human rights as a basis for any political process. We're using our power to create change where we know it can do the most good.

Risks and challenges
This is our third Kickstarter. We have sent our gear all over the world and have had enormous success in reaching out to supporters and have learned the challenges and difficulties of manufacturing on a tight timeline firsthand. We are confident that we can meet our deadline and have sourced every bit of the Kole and have suppliers and artisans just waiting to go. We are ready. Moreover we are completely confident in the process that we have created for manufacturing and quality control. With every bit done by hand and personally inspected by us it is easy to keep an eye out for any defect and misstep.
Your Kole will be delivered on time and we will update you on every step in the process as we go through the Kickstarter blog.Learn about accountability on Kickstarter
