    In honoring our diversity and all people’s equality of dignity and rights, we encouraged everyone to wear non-matching socks on March 21st – to celebrate our differences! World Down Syndrome Day (WDSD), observed on 21 March every year, is a global awareness day which has been officially observed by the United Nations since 2012.

Rock your Socks is an American initiative that the Swedish National Down Syndrome Association adopted when in 2015 ten-year-old Nathea went on Facebook to ask people to mark the day by wearing non-matching socks to school or work.

    Many eager children will be heading back to nursery and school in September. Playful days lie ahead and you need to be ready for sunshine, showers and slush. We have some helpful tips and ideas we’d love to share with you!

Pyret has spent many years developing and testing new and clever functions on our outer garments. 360-degree reflectors for visibility in the dark, easily detachable hoods for safety, pre-bent sleeves in jackets and pre-bent knees in shell garments to give children greater …

  9. From One Kid to Another


    July 22, 2014 by Polarn O. Pyret

    Clothes that can take hundreds of hours of play bring joy to many. Children grow – that’s a fact – but clothes that last are never too small. Not as long as they fit someone smaller. In all the wear and tear of everyday life, clothes that last are something we all benefit from. Hand-me-downs also benefit our Earth. Which is why Polarn O. Pyret has invented an amazing machine that we have installed in our stores. If you put one or more outgrown items in the portal, some other kid will get good use out of them. As a thank you for your help, we will give you a money-off coupon worth $15 Off your next purchase over $70. All donations will be channeled …
