Polka Luka is an Australian design label creating contemporary resin jewellery and homewares. Focusing on clean lines, organic form, and luminous colour- each item is entirely handmade- resulting in pieces with a unique patina in a range of gorgeous custom mixed colours. Taking design cues from fields as diverse as modernist art and architecture to travels across Asia, Polka Luka also imbues a distinctly Australian style- spirited, bold and vibrant.
Polka Luka presents one major collection in August each year, and a smaller capsule in February. All Polka Luka jewellery pieces are designed by Alexandra in Australia and then are handmade in a small cottage workshop in Bali Indonesia. We have now worked with the same group of artisans for ten years; we love our team and are proud of the relationships with have developed and the lives assisted.
Creative Director Alexandra Freeman, has a background in art history, and cultural and language study. Over eight years of travel, cultural conservation and design work in areas across South West China, Tibet, and South East Asia combined to create the rich patchwork of experiences that lead to the creation of the Polka Luka Label in 2006.
Alexandra’s travels and work across South East and East Asia have also illustrated the necessity of equitable and sustainable trade in improving people’s livelihoods and quality of life, and Polka Luka proudly works with two small workshops in Bali, Indonesia. These combined passions of colour, streamlined design, and ethical production are the core foundations of the Polka Luka approach. In addition to jewellery design, Alexandra's other love is interior design as seen here.
