FRIDA COLLECTION

#Frida #FridaKahlo #illustration #porcelain

In November 2019 we introduced our very first collection "FRIDA".  "Frida collection" was inspired by the paintings and life of Frida Kahlo. Our Frida is a lover of long embroidered skirts and monkeys. She spends her time painting "self-portrait with peasant braids and flowers in hair", is attracted to heavyweight artists and is permanently tweezerless. All the illustrations are Polona Pačnik's original work. Like all Polonapolona products, this collection is 100% heavy-duty porcelain. Fridas love to be washed in dishwasher and heated in microwave. If you are not clumsy they should last you a lifetime. Let us get you acquainted...

Strolling down the Zagreb bookshelves with Kata Njavro

We adore Zagreb. There is always some sort of excitement with butterflies in our stomach when we go there for a business meeting. Of course, we always find time to take a walk down its charming streets and drink coffee in one of their finest cafes, maybe even have a croissant. Even if we are on a diet.One of our stops is always a small soulful bookshop Hoču knjigu on Bogovičeva 5. It is one of those bookshops you have to take a look inside. And when you come inside, you get the nicest welcome, the best advice on the...

He fought Vogue editors on fashionability of black turtle-necks and owning 100 pairs of Levis jeans. Back in 80's he tried to explain to his grandmother what computer is and where to find Enter.

FREDDIE, FIGHTING THE DUST

  We just released a brand new rendition of our Freddie: a cappuccino cup with saucer. This time Freddie is on a special mission. He is to conquer in endless war with dust. His weapons are, of course, a vacuum cleaner and a dusting cloth. And you know he is wearing his most fabulous outfit.   Freddie is well behaved and great for tea parties. He is also a great listener if you want to tell him how your day was. He will never be rude to your neighbours and won't go out on Friday evenings. He will also, as...

Poletno kramljanje z Ivo Renčelj

  Nekega lepega sončnega popoldneva smo ob družbi skodelic kramljale s šefico trgovine IKA na Ciril-Metodovem trgu. IKA je ena izmed tistih šarmantnih trgovinic, ki te posrka vase že zaradi svojih finih izložb in razglednic vseh barv in oblik, v notranjosti pa se skriva cela paleta izvrstnih unikatnih izdelkov (in vsi so slovenske izdelave!), med katerimi so tudi PolonaPolona skodelice (čisto takoj pri vhodu levo smo). Njihova šefica, simpatična Iva, karakterno povzema šarm celotne trgovine. Z Ivo se je menila naša Tesa. T: Po čem se Trgovina IKA razlikuje od ostalih trgovin?
                                                 I: Trgovina IKA ponuja izdelke sodobnega...
