During a trip to Columbia - inspired by the breathtaking landscapes and ancient, artisanal knowledge and techniques, the Jungle Folk brand was born. Designers, Pauline Treis created a community-based brand comprised of global artisans in 2013. Only sustainable made and sourced materials as well as recycled ones are used such as organic cotton, linen, silk, and wool.
The styles are timeless, modern, and are designed to stand alone, not follow the typical fashion calendar or trends. By focusing on quality, sustainability, and longevity of design, the pieces are true works or art, with a global interpretation of modern, timeless design.
Jungle Folk employs artisans and sewers globally. Many in Medelin, Colombia, Banja Luka, Bosnia, and Kerala, India. These local artisans, sewers, growers, and trandes folk have perfected ancient techniques, are learning and fine-tuning their craft, and of those employed in Colombia, are mostly female head of households, and helps them to gain skills and support their families.
The founder, Pauline Treis, was born in Munich, Germany, but grew up in and currently resides in Switzerland. We're so proud to have Jungle Folk as a part of the Joon + Co. family and to be expanding our global offerings.
