Anastassia Gonye
Creator and Owner of Tuff Kookooshka
Founded in 1999, Tuff Kookooshka is the creation of Anastassia Gonye, a Russian born American artist, and fashion designer. Tuff Kookooshka has steadily grown from very humble beginnings.  Anastassia started to design her line at her kitchen table, sewing in the basement, using discarded fabrics sold at the factory by the pound. Many years later, Tuff Kookooshka is sold in stores and boutiques across America, in Canada, and Japan. In July 2016, Tuff Kookooshka opened a Retail Shop / Design Studio in Cataumet Massachusetts on Cape Cod.  It is very important to us that all of Tuff Kookooshka clothing is MADE IN USA, using locally manufactured fabrics and notions.  It takes a lot of hard work and sacrifice to keep our production here in the USA, but Anastassia is very proud to have every label say MADE IN USA.   Full Bio Click Here
