In this series, TLP will narrow our coverage of lingerie around the globe and focus on the country of Poland. Poland has a long history of textile manufacturing and since the collapse of the Soviet Union, Poland has been embracing market economies. Freed from quotas and mandated manufacturing, many Polish textile companies are stepping on to the world stage.
The Kinga website is striking. Instead of the ever-present anonymous electronic beats playing in the background, the site opens to full screen photos and a jazz soundtrack. It is Flash based and available in English or Polish. Kinga began in the 90s as is familiar to most of the companies producing lingerie in Poland. They have achieved their ISO 9000 certification in manufacturing and have won other awards too. Kinga offers lingerie, some swimwear, and some outerwear. The style is classically feminine with a heavy use of embroidery, flower details, and small bows. Kinga has retail locations throughout Poland.
