Fairytale print is the best souvenir

You can see fine textile accessories with Russian ornaments in the Kokosha corner next to the restaurant and purchase at the hotel reception.

KOKOSHA is a project created by Ksenia Kossaya, an artist decorator and an interior designer. Her love for Russian crafts and ornaments, as well as her experience working at a major fashion house prompted her to create her very own brand of textile accessories. The goal of the project is to showcase the beauty and variety of folk ornaments in the context of modern fashion trends. In the imagery of the accessories the author alludes in her own way to the traditions of the decorative arts and crafts of Russia, creating in this way her own unique style in the aesthetics of Russian neo folk.

About creating

4 times a year KOKOSHA presents a new print inspired by some arts and crafts theme or other or by a folk fairy tale story. Every print is designed in several colour schemes and is printed on silk head scarves 65 х 65, 90 х 90 и 132 х 132 cm in size. Seeing how the brand develop in a region where the winter lasts almost six months, special attention is paid to the manufacture of warm cashmere and wool shawls 132 х 132 cm in size. The company also produces silk and wool kimonos and dresses with author's prints.

The assortment includes silver and gilded rings for the head scarves that make your silk scarf a unique accessory.
