The Ambassador of the Dominican Republic to UNESCO invites Jenny to make the exhibition Design as a Sample of Identity to commemorate International Women's Day. Jenny Polanco's work is developed by continuing this idea of our ancestors, to produce valuable objects that play a role both in beautifying the body and in the tasks of daily life.

Jenny Polanco can be considered a pioneer in our country. His creations are rooted in the Dominican cultural heritage and are directly nourished by traditional crafts, gastronomy, climate, ethnic groups, flora and fauna, the rhythms and flavors of the Dominican Republic, to generate a product that combines the identity, manufacturing and sensitivity of the Caribbean, with a high sense of quality. In short: it starts from a local "discourse" to produce a universal language. Excerpt from Laura Faxas Speech, Ambassador to UNESCO, March 2015.015.
