Polli was founded in 2002 by Sydney based designers Tess Lloyd & Maja Rose. Polli is known for its stainless steel jewellery, which they have been making for over 10 years, producing 100s of signature designs.
Over time the range evolved and introduced a timber collection exploring different painted, printed and screen printed finishes. In more recent years homewares, clothing and accessories have also been introduced, growing the Polli brand to what it is today.
Polli was born from Tess and Maja’s strong interests in sustainable design, craft culture and fashion. The products are influenced by Japanese and Danish paper designs, nature, vintage treasures and architecture.
By creating home and fashion accessories through manufacturing techniques usually reserved for industrial products, Polli is a hybrid of product and fashion design. It appropriates materials and processes from other industries for mini mass production. Polli is designed and made in Australia with love and care. Polli products are designed to last both in their durability of material and process and also in their independent design aesthetic.
In July 2014, Polli introduced new directors Brooke Johnston & Sarah Thornton who took over the future designing & direction of Polli. With a common love and vision for the Polli brand, they’re proud to keep the brand alive and look forward to maintaining its high quality, ethical standards and keeping it all Australian made.
Brooke comes from a background of jewellery design and trade. Sarah comes from a background of fashion design and production. Together they’ve designed and manufactured their own products; run events, an online store and a bricks & mortar store. As they are both designers, they have a strong understanding on good design, quality and craftsmanship. This, combined with years of working with the Australian design community, means they have a great knowledge of current trends in both design and new technology.
