POLOLO is always on the lookout for new ecological, modern solutions and materials for the production of beautiful and contemporary children's shoes. With our concerns for the environment and the future, we are thriving to find innovative, climate and environmentally friendly solutions for the production of shoes. We love nature and want to help shape a fair and sustainable supply chain, for all the needs that our customers have. For a long time, we have searched for a leather alternative material for our shoe collection. In Mexico we have found it: cactus leather!

This motto of the SEAQUAL INITIATIVE inspired us to create our colourful slipper collection made from upcycled marine plastic. Unfortunately, many millions of tons of waste still end up in our oceans every year. We all know this is a threat to our environment! On behalf of the SEAQUAL INITIATIVE, this plastic waste is collected from the seabed off the Spanish coast by around 400 partner fishermen and then processed into SEAQUAL® YARN. Each kilogram of SEAQUAL® YARN produced corresponds to one kilogram of waste. In order to avoid waste as well, POLOLO does not use any outer packaging or plastic as far as possible.

Vegan line obtained from the prickly pear cactus

POLOLO is always looking for new ecological, modern solutions and materials for the production of beautiful and contemporary children’s shoes. In our “cactus leather” sneaker line, the raw material is obtained from the prickly pear cactus.

It is made from the leaves of the prickly pear. The leaves are not uprooted, but only renewable leaves are used for the production. The cultivation is controlled organic. No energy is used to dry the leaves. The leaves dry in the sun.

Our motto: We hold on to the fact that there is always a way to see and shape things differently. Maximisation is far from everything – we have a great responsibility towards the environment and future generations, we at POLOLO think!

PS: By the way, Pololo is Chilean and means “firm friend” and that is what POLOLO is supposed to be – a good and long-lasting companion!

Not all cotton is the same. The sustainable alternative is called organic cotton from controlled organic cultivation.

Organic cotton is cotton that is produced and certified according to the guidelines and standards of organic agriculture. The cultivation of organic cotton is sustainable and preserves the health of the soil, nature and people, because instead of artificial fertilizers and pesticides are used only natural means and sustainable methods. The use of toxic chemicals and genetically modified organisms (e.g. seeds) is prohibited. Instead, the cultivation of organic cotton combines tradition, innovation and science to benefit the environment and promote a good quality of life for all.
