Popia knitwear Founder Poppy Gall is a born entrepreneur and no stranger to women-run business. She founded a women-run knitting company when she was 20 that employed 40 women knitters. In 1998 she co-founded Isis For Women, the first women-specific outdoor clothing brand in the United States. Isis for Women raised the bar for women’s expectations of outdoor gear, changed the way big brands thought about women’s product design, and inspired the founding of other women-specific brands in the Outdoor market.
A prolific designer, Poppy currently designs outdoor and ski apparel and knitwear for nationally recognized brands at Poppy Gall Design. Her latest venture is Popia, a luxury knitwear company founded in 2019. Popia is sold through specialty retailers and on-line.
“As a designer and entrepreneur I have always been happiest when designing and selling clothing and accessories that bring pleasure to others. Knitting, a love that was ignited when I was a small girl, has always been my medium of choice.
I find myself coming full circle designing knit hats for Popia with a renewed energy and a fresh perspective. Color and pattern fuel my spirit and infuse my work. It is my sincerest wish that Popia hats bring joy to the wearer.”
