Paola Colombo is the Italian designer behind Pollaz (a nickname of hers for years). She lives in Verona, where she graduated in Scenography at the Academy of Arts. Having always enjoyed filling sheets of paper and notebooks with drawings and doodles, she taught herself to sew (and fell in love with it!) as a way to use needles, fabric and thread to bring her drawings to life. Paola's work is now sold in boutiques around the world and displayed in exhibitions both in Italy and abroad.
