We offer sustainable Finnish design
We are a Finnish startup company founded in 2021. Our mission is to design and manufacture environmentally friendly, high-quality and domestic dog accessories that bring joy to both dogs and owners. We want to bring timeless Finnish design style to pet accessories, because pets have established their place as family members and that can be seen in the interior. More and more people are thinking about responsible consumption, and with Polar Barks, we want to enable responsible and at the same time beautiful choices in interior design.
For Polar Barks team members, dogs are important family members. The inspiration for founding Polar Barks came after the CEO got Aspen, a Samoyed dog. Our CEO noticed the low supply of Finnish and ethical products. The source of our inspiration, Aspen, pleases us, for example, in the logo and brand images of Polar Barks. It is important to us that our products are not only stylish and durable, but also dog-oriented. The product design process always starts with mapping the needs of dogs. After the prototypes are completed, all our products are first tested by our own dogs. All our products that end up in production are therefore approved by our furry friends.
The manufacturing of our products is also domestic
Niina Koivu, a designer specialized in industrial design (AMK) who graduated from the Lahti Institute of Design, LAB University of Applied Sciences, is responsible for our product design. We are constantly looking for new opportunities to invest in the ecology of our products, primarily by supporting Finnish production. Our products are manufactured in Finland because we want to support Finnish work and make sure that the production is ethical. We see product development as a continuous process, so we actively improve products based on tests and customer feedback.
