We started Kurocha Gifts (née Kurochka Clothing) because we wanted to create a company where we could showcase Russian and Ukrainian culture in a quirky way, all the while feeding you morsels of fun facts and trivia about our culture and history. We make t-shirts, handmade gifts, prints, and more with designs inspired by Russian and Ukrainian culture, folk tales and food – a cookbook was the only logical progression.Check out kurochka.store
