About Popia

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 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 decades.

About Poppy

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 U.S. 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.”
