Kurochka began on Kickstarter and we couldn’t have done it without our lovely supporters. Here is the video we used to explain our project!
Kurochka was started by Mother-Daughter team Ellen and Yana, two Former Soviet Union imports to Brooklyn. We make stuff – t-shirt, totes, gifts, cards, prints – with designs inspired by Russian & Ukrainian folklore, fairy tales, culture and food.
But we don’t just want to outfit the world in good-looking gear. We also want to teach you about these countries: the traditions, the culture, the food (the drink!), the fairy tales, the quirks, the myths and the reality. How do you make borscht? Who is that old hag who lives in the cabin on chicken legs? How do I kill Koshchey Bessmertny?
All this knowledge and more can be yours to make you better at Trivial Pursuit, crossword puzzles, cocktail parties or life in general.
Eat More Russian Food
Kurochka has a huge list of projects in the works. Since we’re focused on design and education, and are also obsessed with food, our next idea seemed right up our alley: a book of recipes, food-related stories, history, illustrations, facts and more.
We are currently looking for an agent. If you know one or are one, or have any ideas or requests, please email us: firstname.lastname@example.org
