The Story of Póg
Póg is the Irish word for kiss.
And that, quite simply is what Póg is, an Irish Kiss. Being Hailed as the new alternative to the Claddagh ring, Póg asks us to wear love, to send love, to show love.
The idea for Póg came to Melissa after she had just returned to Ireland after fifteen years living an working as a designer in Paris and she felt a little lost. Feeling disconnected from her roots and her former world, she was stuck in-between lives. It was a solitary time. Her son who was three years old and his little kiss was always reassuring at the end of the day.
The Symbol for Póg is an X, (kiss) a familiar letter that has become an affectionate symbol, be it digital or written. And so, the idea as to merge the sentiment of a kiss in Irish, (Póg) and the little X together.
Melissa loved the idea of sending Irish Kisses to people allover the world and felt was a need for something new in Ireland to represent the mire progressive country and cultural context bringing forward in our new emerging identity and cultural context.
