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.
Lupoline is our first stop on this tour of Polish lingerie. The company has been ramping up production since 2002 and now offers an immense product line (see thumbnails below). The line looks to be of high quality and it is clear from the website that Lupoline is eyeing markets outside of Poland with content that has been localized for many countries and languages. The domain Lupoline.us has recently been acquired and the company may be making a push for the US market.
The collections includes well over 30 pieces per season and this is on top of a permanent collection. The pieces are numbered which helps with their deep catalogue. Here are a few selections:

Lupoline is available from a company store at http://www.sklep.lupoline.pl/ and from Desu.com.pl. If you can’t remember your exchange rate for zloty Google US or Google UK can easily convert to US greenbacks or UK pounds. If you would rather, TLP favorite Peacock and Strutt have also stocked some pieces from Lupoline collection. You may be able to email them and see if they have access to more of the pieces.
