Kashuba homage

Three questions for Irina Kaschuba from Kaschuba Homage

Kashuba Homage is the interdisciplinary and sustainable label of the designer Irina Kaschuba. The focus here is on the combination of traditional craftsmanship, high-quality natural materials and contemporary design that puts you in a good mood.

The current work is dedicated to SUN CURTAINS, handmade and custom-made curtains based on the Korean Pojagi technique.


The label focuses on shoulder pieces such as scarves, capes, ponchos and collars, which are characterized by their unique color and material compositions. All materials such as cashmere, wool, silk, lambskin and antique fabrics from around the world are 100% upcycled.

The manufacturing method combines old traditional craftsmanship with sustainable principles. All pieces are made using a special sewing technique to ensure a lifetime of durability. By using old traditional methods such as stitching, pojagi or marquetry interpreted in unique ways, the label has found its voice in modern contemporary patchwork.

All handmade individual pieces radiate individuality and stand out from the mainstream and the unhealthy rhythms of mass industries. They are dedicated to men and women with a sense of uniqueness who can recognize and appreciate quality craftsmanship.

1. What was or is your motivation behind Kashuba Homage?

Kashuba Homage is about combining traditional craftsmanship with contemporary design and high-quality natural materials. I want to create timeless classics that are functional, sensual and aesthetic at the same time, and create a good mood.

2. What do you advise our readers: What can you do specifically for a better future?

So much and definitely don't lose hope. If it all seems too much, focus on the immediate, on life and the environment that is going on around you and see what you need and what lies within much power. To question things and find your own solutions instead of letting most things be dictated to you. Become less dependent on large corporations in terms of consumer behavior. In general, do more things yourself, repair things instead of buying them new, pay attention to quality.


At first the impulse came to say, actually not at all. But that only applies to some types of travel that are simply not sustainable. I think it cannot be underestimated how important travel itself is for people. It is in our nature to have this curiosity to discover something, to exchange ideas, to experience new things. It inspires, enriches and broadens your horizons. When you see how beautiful this world can be, how different and yet the same you are in the end, no matter where you live, I think you want to protect the earth more.
