Xenia and her family emigrated to Germany from the former Soviet Union in 1995. After graduating with a degree in Fashion Design from a Berlin Fashion School, she went to New York City to work as a designer for the luxury label Natori. While in New York, she discovered Etsy. She returned to Berlin two years later to start her shop. In addition to running Xenia Kuhn, she designs costumes, authors a blog and posts videos to YouTube.
