Inherit the Stripes


June 7, 2013 by PO.P Press

fadeWho will inherit your kids’ PO.P stripes? The PO.P Stripe was designed by sisters Katarina af Klintberg and Gunila Axén back in the mid-70s as part of our first collection. Gunila Axén is a world-renowned textile designer, outside of the PO.P stripes, she’s probably best known for her Cloud design. The PO.P stripes are meant to be friendly and playful—not necessary for boy or girl. This was new in the 70s and, to some, still is today.

We design clothing that withstand wear-and-tear and become part of your family; from brother to sister, cousin to cousin or even father to son.
