Couples can buy any artwork they like and their guests can crowd-fund a uniqe wedding registry.

Our slogan is “Paint your marriage in color“.

How Mishkalo Started

How it started …

The idea for Mishkalo started, interestingly, with a thank you note we received from a couple. The note thanked us profusely for the thoughtful blender we had given them as a wedding gift. We thought it was a nice gesture and that was that.

And a few days later, we found the gift receipt. We had bought them a set of wine glasses, not a blender. That struck us as a double irony – neither the couple nor we remembered what the gift was. Perhaps because the couple did not need a blender or wine glasses; and we probably did not spend a second to think ponder what would be an appropriate wedding gift for them – we probably picked the next item in their department-store wedding registry that nobody else had bought yet.
