|How It All Began|
The name Krasnaya comes from Krasnaya Ploshchad meaning Red Square. The word originally also meant 'beautiful', which perfectly describes Russian Matryoshka.
We are a small company founded initially on a love of Matryoshka, which began many years ago on a trip to Russia. For anyone who has seen the row upon row of beautiful designs, it's hard not to fall in love.
As craft lovers we were eager to try our hand at decorating our own Russian Dolls, using traditional painting techniques and applied decoration. It is a very rewarding hobby that any age can enjoy, from young children to adults. As soon as we have decided what design to do on a Matryoshka, we want to finish it to get on with another exciting idea!
The Company Now
Krasnaya is a company always on the lookout for fresh ideas, as well as a new take on existing
products. Since designing our unique Painta Pets range of paint-your-own nesting animal kits in 2009, we have regularly added new craft kits to ensure our stockists always have something new and unique.
Alongside the Painta Pets selection of craft kits, we launched a new range of handmade EcoSoy wax melts in 2012. The products, including the packaging, are all eco friendly, offering 'Luxury with a Conscience'.
We hope you enjoy our range as much as we do.
