Despite this, his biography is not a special secret: a couple of times he still gave interviews to journalists about his childhood and the people who surrounded him many years ago. Chapurin was born in Velikiye Luki on March 21, 1968. All members of his family were very creative, gifted people. Igor's grandfather was one of the best specialists in flax processing in the Soviet Union, he managed the flax factory in Velikiye Luki until his retirement. It is not surprising that Igor Chapurin spent his childhood with beautiful, high-quality fabrics, he often observed the whole process of making them with his own eyes. His parents worked at a knitting factory, and almost every night a little Chapurin heard their heated debate about production, gradually learning a lot of details, subtleties, permeated with the spirit of this profession. After all, in the factory where his mother and father worked, there were absolutely all cycles of creating clothes - from the creation of fabrics, their colors, finishing with the sketch of models and their sewing.
