The Polska Traveller
A Polska inspired Hong Kong based studio – The Polska Traveller was founded by designer Yeung Sau-lun during an exchange trip to Poland in his University years. All alone in an unfamiliar territory, his curiosity led him off the tracks of common tourist attractions; he wandered, explored and searched patiently for local treasures.
The fascination of old artifacts blossomed within the local markets and second-hand stores on the streets of Poland. Yeung unravelled a bundle of old metallic goods, and gave them another life by remaking them into new pieces of jewellery. He learnt the deeper meaning of these old goods through locals’ perception, and once described in an interview that “the feeling of age to them (Poles) are traces of stories and history.”
