Screenprinted designs inspired by out Russian & Ukrainian roots.

Kurochka was started by mother-daughter team Ellen and Yana, two Former Soviet Union imports to Brooklyn. We make small batches of unique gifts for the mind, heart, and home with designs inspired by Russian & Ukrainian folklore, fairy tales, culture and food.
But we don't just want to bring beauty to you. 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.
We also wrote a book! More Than Borsch is a cookbook (and more) which explores the true nature of Russian and Ukrainian culture through classic recipes, culinary history, foodie literature and enlightening tidbits, satiating both the stomach and the brain.
