3Kauli is a Georgian online workshop that manufactures gold and silver ware.
Toma and Ambrosi Jikias, grand grandfathers of Marika Burchuladze, founder of 3Kauli enterprise, were famous masters in Tbilisi and they were specialized in two directions: Grekhiluri (making ornaments by wire) and smithcraft (making ornaments and putting stones by hand).
The Marketer has interviewed Marika Burchuladze about the idea of workshop foundation, influence of grand grandfathers and future plans.
M: – Marika, how have you decided to found the online workshop and how many specialists work for 3Kauli?
-I wanted to create something new, which would be innovation in Internet space. Consequently, we represent the first online workshop that makes gold and silver ware. As to name 3Kauli, I wanted to select something Georgian and ordinary word – SAMKAULI (Decoration). A total of 6 persons work at our workshop, 3 for gold ware and 3 ones for silver ware.

-3Kauli is special for its quality, affordable prices and individual approach to all clients. We work only on gold and silver ware.
M:- How does 3Kauli continue the business of grand grandfathers?
