Igrika (Georgian: იგრიკა) is a Georgian start-up enterprise founded in 2020. Based in Tbilisi, The company and its founders are aimed at preserving and promoting traditional Georgian craftsmanship through their handmade items and souvenirs.[1][2][3] The enterprise draws inspiration from the cultural heritage of Georgia, including its unique traditional designs, patterns, and motifs, which are incorporated into its products.


Igrika was founded on April 5th. The name "Igrika" is derived from an archaic Georgian word for the month of April, in contrast to the modern Latin-derived term "Aprili". One of the main aims of the founders of Igrika was to research and revive ancient Georgian ornaments, symbols, and crafts, and incorporate them into modern designs through handcrafted accessories and decorations. The brand aims to create a blend of tradition and modernity, paying homage to the cultural heritage of Georgia.[4] One of the core principles of Igrika is the belief that each symbol and ornament used in their designs has its own unique backstory.[5] As the founders of the enterprise have stated, these stories “can be read on stone carvings or dusty old tomes, that can be heard on festivals or bedtime stories, are the sincerest tales about us, as a nation.”[6]


Igrika offers a diverse range of hand-crafted accessories and decorations, each carefully crafted with traditional Georgian motifs and techniques. Some of the products include:

  • Hand block printed textiles – Firstly Igrika's artisans search for symbols and their meanings before sketching and combining two or more ornaments to create a design. This design is then meticulously drawn on a special block for printing and carved out by hand with chisels. The result is a carved block that can be used to create prints on various surfaces.
  • Hand carved wood platters - Igrika's artisans create carved wooden boards by first sketching the design, combining multiple ornaments, and then carefully carving the shape on a refined wood. The boards are then polished several times using natural oils to fix the color of the wood, ensuring they are safe for all-purpose usage.
  • Unique personalized library stamps - Igrika offers special, customized seals that are highly stylized and reminiscent of the traditional Georgian Khelrtva or "Adorned Signature". Customers can choose from any of the three Georgian alphabets (Asomtavruli, Nuskhuri, and Mkhedruli), or other writing systems based on their preferences.[7]
  • Hand block Printed Posters – Specialized paper product made with linocut technique. After finding the relevant ornaments or symbols, designers combine them into an unified composition, after which they are carved on the linoleum and ultimately printed on the Textured paper.


Igrika currently delivers its products globally, through most commonly across Europe and North America, with shipping costs usually included in the overall price for foreign buyers, eliminating the need for additional shipping fees. The company takes both personal and corporate requests, providing hand-crafted items for a diverse range of customers.[8]
