Krukrustudio creators are Max and Lyuba. We were both born in the North – in Karelia Republic, close to Finland. And both received a typical Russian education, Lyuba as a philologist and myself as a physicist. But both had quite a different interests: Lyuba was good in drawing and I played guitar and attended courses in tailoring. We got together in Moscow back in 2008 and three years after came to the conclusion that we need to develop our talents rather than just work.
In January 2011 we finally got down to business. Why bags? Because everyone needs a bag! Wool felt that Lyuba found was perfect for experimenting and we spent about two months making quite classical style bags for our friends and for local shops. Until we realized that the felt provides great opportunities for modeling all kinds of shapes and unleashed our creativity.
