“Extraordinary things are always hiding in places people never think to look.”
― Jodi Picoult
One of the things Angie and I love about our work is that we know that there is a whole world of countless makers and artisans out there innovating, creating and just waiting to be discovered. We have had the pleasure of working with a number of inspirational artisans and designers over the years, but sometimes it can get to the point where you think you've seen it all, heard all the best ideas and then somebody creates something new, something different, something unexpected and it leaves us both speechless and excited for more.
Our work takes us across Pakistan - into the home of a rural artisan based in Chitral who is bursting to share her latest design or the studio of a independent creative spirit in Lahore who has just fashioned treasure from fire and metal. Our job allows us to get to know them all - to form a connection, to learn, to travel, to support.
And this is what polly & other stories is all about. Working with people we admire, selling products we love, helping people grow and develop through innovation, design and enterprise.
As polly and other stories makes it way into the world wide web, we hope that you are as excited about this journey as we are - we look forward to sharing our stories with you!
