Kurochka is a team project with my daughter Yana Barysheva. We’re working on designs for multiple objects/merchandise/gifts based on Russian and Ukrainian folklore, fairy tales and culture.
There are a lot of information and stories about these countries: the traditions, the culture, the food, the fairy tales, the quirks, the myths and the reality and more on the Kurocha site.
