Karolina Kurkova

Gryph & IvyRose | Co-Founder

Many people know Karolina as the last of the true supermodels. She has had an enviable career having worked with the world’s top fashion designers, photographers and beauty editors and has graced the covers of Vogue, W and Harpers Bazaar multiple times to name a few. What some people don’t know, is that she is a mom to two boys and has a deep love and appreciation for all things natural. Growing up in the Czech Republic, Karolina was no stranger to family home remedies and experienced farming and growing food firsthand. Staying healthy has been a crucial factor in Karolina’s life as keeping up with the grueling demands and travel schedule of a supermodel mom isn’t easy. Since she was 19 years old, Karolina has been experimenting with alternative and holistic practices in both beauty and health. She truly believes that beauty and well being begin on the inside. Her travel and experiences along with her constant drive to evolve and learn has affected the way she raises her children, introducing them early to healthy foods and habits and always searching out the best ingredients in products. Through her own thirst for continuous knowledge and practices, she sought out an acupuncturist to treat her family and found Orion. It was a natural partnership with Orion and Rachel when they begin talking about Gryph & IvyRose and the goals of creating pure, functional products for children as well as creating resources and giving back to families.
