Here at IPDA we’re massive fans of Sway Polewear. Having known Agata Jurago-Pach, the amazing human behind the brand, for many years, I wanted to have a semi-formal sit down with her to chat about Sway’s mission, the intricate processes that go into the creation of the pole wear and how investing in well-made items can have a more a positive effect for the Earth.
Agata is no stranger to IPDA, having performed at many of our Showcases and taken part in more classes than we can count! I hope that you’ll enjoy learning more about her as she talks about herself and her pole journey alongside how Sway is made. There’s also a sneaky peak of some new Sway items as well as future collaborations, such as the #GetSwayed Challenge with The Chrome Bar!

You can also avail of some sweet Sway swag on our webstore here!
Here are some additional words from Agata: “Thank you Arlene for the interview – I was super excited and tiny bit nervous so I want to add those links to compliment what I was saying:You can find all the info about fabrics and materials we use under this link: https://www.sway-polewear.com/pages/eco-materials
Please check how we try to approach sustainability since founding Sway: https://www.sway-polewear.com/pages/sustainability-road-map
To one of your last questions I realised after that I didn’t say the full names of my friends that I admire and that are my great inspiration. They also have helped me a lot from the very beginning and I want to thank them so much for it: Rhiannon White @redrhi, Sarah Backmilk @sblackmilk, Leanne Cummins @leannedancedance, and my lovely host Arlene Caffrey @arlenecaffrey. I would be nothing without you, my friends <3“
