New Beginnings

Polli Team - Friday, June 27, 2014

Polli has always been one big family; a group of women who share a studio, a vision, many lunches and laughs.

This is such a special time as our family has grown these past few months to include two new directors - Brooke and Sarah. It’s an exciting time of new beginnings, for us as individuals and for Polli. As we, Tess and Maja, step away from Polli this week Brooke and Sarah take the helm. We’ve really enjoyed working together as a bigger team to pack up the Sydney studio, discuss plans and share knowledge. In early July Polli will be set up in it’s new home of Byron Bay, in Northern NSW. If you haven’t been to Byron then go! It’s beautiful.

Thank you for all of your support over the past 12 years or part thereof. To create a culture, business, relationships and products that you’re proud of is really special. To create a job you love is rare and we couldn’t have done it without all the support we’ve received - from our partners, families, team, friends, suppliers and customers.

Many people have commented that this time must be bittersweet, and honestly it has been a wee bit emotional, but overall we feel gratitude and a sense of celebration. Brooke and Sarah have been amazing to work with; they are creative and clever, they are fun, they love chai and a cheeky afternoon treat, they are great cooks, they have a great business partnership and are great friends, they’re adaptable, hardworking and caring. We are really proud that they’re taking the reins and we can’t wait to see what these clever women do with Polli in the future.  

What are we doing next? We’re looking forward to just stopping and breathing for a while, taking it easy and enjoying our young children, then seeing where our creative paths lead us.

Cheers to new beginnings.  
xx Tess & Maja

Welcome Brooke & Sarah

Polli Team - Monday, May 26, 2014
Welcome to Brooke and Sarah the new designers and directors of Polli from July 2014. Brooke (left) comes from a background of jewellery design and trade. Sarah (right) 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.
This is what the girls have to say: “We both have a huge amount of respect and admiration for Polli, which we believe is a strong iconic design label with a loyal brand following. We feel it is a huge honour to be given this opportunity to take on Polli under our wings and nurture it with the same amount of love and work that Tess & Maja have given it over the years. We are looking forward to keeping Polli’s signature style, and creating new products and ranges in the future.”

Big News From Polli

Polli Team - Sunday, May 25, 2014
We are pleased to announce that Polli is welcoming two new directors, Brooke and Sarah, to the helm from July 2014. These two are amazing women; they’re creative and passionate and we know they will be the perfect fit for Polli to move into the future.

We have had such an amazing journey over the past 12 years, but it is now time for a change, for us and the business.

We wanted to personally thank you all for the support and friendship you have provided through the years. Of all the experiences – 100s of designs, trips overseas, laughs, an amazing team of women, our beautiful little studio, many communal lunches, seeing our products in great magazines and worn by beautiful women, and so much more - it has really been connecting with so many great people that has made this journey so special. Thank you for your support, and we look forward to seeing Polli blossom into the future.

From an operational perspective, there will be no immediate changes, Brooke and Sarah will keep you up to date with their plans as they develop. We will be working alongside Brooke and Sarah for the 5 weeks to ensure a smooth transition.

Thanks again for all your support,
Tess + Maja xx

Easter Baking with Children

Polli Team - Thursday, April 10, 2014

We've had great fun testing this recipe with our own kids. They were easy to bake and got gobbled up quick smart!

What you'll need:
1  ¼ cup of milk
½ cup caster sugar
14 g yeast
4 cups plain flour
1 tsp ground cinnamon
1 tsp ground nutmeg
¼ tsp salt
½ cup currants
½ sultanas
Zest of 1 lemon
1 egg lightly beaten
100g unsalted butter, melted and cooled
Extra Flour, sugar and water for cross
Apricot Jam and hot water for glaze

Mix milk and sugar in saucepan over low heat until lukewarm. Remove from heat and stir in yeast. Set aside to develop.
Sift flour, spices and salt together in a large bowl, mix through zest. (Optional add dried fruit now, we did it later so the kids had the fun of adding their own).
Add yeast mix, egg and butter to dry ingredients and mix.
Turn onto flour surface to knead for 5-10minutes until smooth and elastic or use a stand mixer with a dough hook attachment. Note this is a wet dough.
Return dough to oiled bowl, cover with cling film or tea towel and allow to double in size (about an hour in a warm place). Punch the dough down.
Pre heat over to 200C.
Divide into 16 equal sized balls (optional add dried fruit now and knead again) and place in lined 23cm square tin. Cover and allow to double in size (about 30 minutes), dough should be level with top of tin (a tight fitting square baking dish works best).

To decorate: combine 1tbsp of caster sugar with 1/3  cup of flour and ¼ cup of water until smooth. Place in resealable bag and cut one corner off to make a piping bag. Pipe crosses, letters or shapes on the buns.
Bake buns in oven for 20mins or until buns are golden and risen.
Remove and cool on wire rack.

For Glaze: Combine 2 Tbsp of jam with 2 Tbsp boiling water and mix well and until jam dissolves. You may need to heat on stove. Use a pastry brush to coat the buns. This will make them glossy and beautiful.

Serve warm with butter and enjoy! Best eaten the day of baking.
