Our Gold and Silver plating is done in Barcelona under the most strict sustainable conditions, only recycled Gold and Silver are employed in a process where water is reused numerous times and thoroughly filtered before being discarded, free of harmful chemicals.
Pre-Loved: For our Vintage Collection, Pola reclaims, recovers and crafts One of a Kind Pre-Loved pieces found in antique shops and flea markets around the world. By Reinventing and Reusing them we give these pieces a New Life within a New Fresh concept, reducing the carbon footprint that manufacturing new ones would create.
Local Production: Our original designs are handcrafted in a small young workshop in Barcelona, just 15 minutes by bike from our studio atelier. Our brass chains are locally crafted in our sister island Menorca at one of the few remaining chain manufacturers on the island, a small family run business operating since 1962. By working closely with local suppliers we are supporting them and helping the local economy.
