Tia´s spring favourites

SS21 favourites of our team members 3/4

As it is difficult to meet people face to face these days, we wanted to take a moment to introduce our Team and make a quick Q&A so you will get to know us and find out the SS21 favourites of our team members.

Meet the Store Manager, Tia 

Tia takes care of our Flagship Store. She is usually the one you meet when visiting the store. Tia became officially a member of Terhi's team in 2018. Let's see what she has to say about herself and her inspiration.

Q & A

Hi Tia, tell us about yourself.

I was born in Kajaani, but I have been living here and there before settling to Helsinki. I met with Terhi in 2013, when I was finishing my Design studies. After that I have been doing some little projects for her along the years. In 2018, I was honoured to be asked as a member of Terhi's team and have been working since then full time for her. At the moment I have taken some business studies alongside my job to serve better the brand and customers in the future.

What inspires you at the moment?
At the moment I get inspired by other cultures, design, music and art. I think it's very important to stop once in a while and focus on your surroundings, like for example sometimes you might find details from your own home street view that you have never seen before. 

What is a normal work day for you at Terhi Pölkki?

My Work day starts usually by opening the Store. I maintain keeping the store clean for all of our customers all along the day. I check all the emails and online orders and take care of them. I also keep close contact with the studio on a daily basis and assist them if needed on some projects we might have under work during that time. My days are quite different, because we work in a fast pace and try to figure out always something new. Sometimes my whole day might go on by helping customers. At times we have special guests, photoshootings or happenings and sometimes I might be doing a detective work, trying to find lost packages. The most rewarding days for me are the ones, when I can see that someone leaves happy with our shoes from the store.

What’s you favourite piece from Terhi's collection?

This is the hardest question by so far! It depends so much of the day. All of Terhi's shoes are comfortable and they make you feel empowered whenever you wear them. I actually only wear Terhi Pölkki shoes anymore.
At work I love to wear Artur Stirrup Clogs. I need to stand a lot and my feet won't get tired with Artur clogs. And yes, they look amazing. 
My second choice is Ursula ballerina. A must have, that gives contemporary feeling and make every outfit look smart. 
With Vera Fussbets I can't wait until the summer! Just the thought of slipping on them quickly to get outside and to stay outside for the whole day under the warm sun is something I anticipate a lot. 

The SS21 collection is launched and available both online and at our new store at Uudenmaankatu 2.
