‘Chini’ is a new Georgian brand that has just joined the local market offering suitcase hoods that carry the Georgian identity. Maka Gurgenidze and her daughter Irinka Tsakadze, lovers of traveling, were inspired three years ago. After finding the right fabrics, atelier, and suppliers, the founders decided to put their creation into patriotic work – making the suitcase hoods the ‘ambassadors’ of Georgia through the Georgian alphabet, Georgian flag, ‘borderization’, “Georgia is Occupied by Russia” and Georgian painters. Chini plans include the expansion of output, as well as themes.



Georgian restaurant ‘Barbarestan’ has found a new source of acknowledgment.

A real chance to discover forgotten but authentic Georgian food in an interior matched to those times: an eclectic mix of soft lampshades, lace tablecloths, and vintage crockery.” The author of the concept, branding, interior design and F&B menu of Barbarestan is the team behind ‘Gastronaut’.
