Our story began in a small Prague apartment, where architect and designer Sasha Fefelova was inspired to make a cushion for her living room. After a feature in the media, its eye-catching and distinctive design received widespread attention, and the idea quickly became a business reality. Our brand was officially established in 2012 with a name derived from an old Russian word used by Sasha’s grandmother, 'Kumekat', meaning to create or invent.
Combining Sasha's professional background in architectural design and her passion for craft and sewing, Kumeko celebrates traditional crafting methods and blends them with modern, functional design. Specialising in personal and home apparel, our range is comprised of unique pieces designed to compliment your lifestyle. Every item is inspired by the best of the old world and re-imagined for the new.
At Kumeko we believe in slow design, valuing ethical principles and ideas that are thoughtfully developed. Our products are made exclusively from sustainable materials sourced from European suppliers, and with each item lovingly assembled by hand in our Berlin studio, you are assured of its highest quality.
We take inspiration from all corners of the world, and in the same spirit, we are proud to ship our products worldwide.
