Pololo shoes are based on four principles: excellent handicraft, charming design, production in Germany, and social & ecological accountability. Each model is a distinct piece of craftsmanship. Leather, one of the world’s oldest textile materials, is tanned animal skin – a natural product! It gives us breathable, steam-permeable and skin-friendly protection from the cold, from moisture and from foot injuries.
POLOLOS retain these natural qualities. Each model is a piece of handwork from Pololo's workshop in Bavaria. Only renewable vegetable materials are used for the tanning of the leather and lambskin used, such as the Valonea oak or the Tara fruit.
POLOLO is an active member of the Internationaler Verband für Naturtextilien (IVN). The company consistently follows the exacting guidelines of the IVN certificate for natural leather (“Naturleder”) that applies the strictest of requirements concerning contaminants content and manufacturing conditions, and prohibits the use of chrome-tanned leather. POLOLO only works with partners and suppliers who fulfill these obligations. Pololo shoes are compostable, and unnecessary packaging is avoided.
