Polli offers sustainable jewellery and homewares, designed and made in Australia. Maja Rose and Tess Lloyd met in 1999 while studying Industrial Design and soon they were selling polypropylene baskets at local markets, and Polli was born.

Having a sustainable sensibility from the start, the pair would carefully save all of the off-cuts and cut-outs from the baskets, hoping to reuse them in some way. Combining their love for recycling and fashion, the off-cuts were twisted, knotted and looped together to make a range of brightly coloured earrings to sell alongside the baskets.

The earrings quickly began to outsell the Polli baskets and the rest is history. These Origami Earrings – Black Leather ($129.95 AUD) and Origami Necklace – Black Leather ($169.95 AUD) are both made of recycled stainless steel  Free shipping in Australia and only AUD$5 to ship everywhere else in the world.
