Popia is a premium collection of limited edition knitted headwear. Designed to bring a spark of color and style to your winter wardrobe, our hats are knit in Italy by a multi-generational family run business. Distinctly colorful patterns and surprise details are signature traits of Founder and Designer Poppy Gall.
Our hats are meticulously crafted in small batches using super soft merino wool blended yarns that have been dyed and spun to exacting European environmental standards. We are excited to offer natural fiber headwear that, if well cared for, will last generations.
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.
My first entrepreneurial endeavor was creating whimsically patterned hand-loomed ski hats and sweaters that were sold throughout North America.
I went on to co-found Isis For Women, the first women’s-only outdoor clothing brand in the U.S. Though my main focus was on designing technical apparel for skiing and climbing, I always made room to include colorful knits in each collection.
As freelance designer specializing in knitwear and lifestyle and technical apparel design I’ve been privileged to leave my design mark and color sense on many extraordinary brands. I continue to be the lead designer and Creative Director for Poppy Gall Design Studio.
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.
