"It's a fashion first-aid kit for frosty airplanes, icy cubicles or frozen-food aisles." - Chicago Tribune



Our Story


From its humble prototype made out of a shower curtain and safety pins, The Pocket Poppet has come a long way thanks to the vision, dedication, and energy of its creators, Helen Tyler and Karen Hill-Krolow.

The women, who initially met in an antique store-slash-coffee shop, bonded over the need for a small, cozy wrap that could be toted around to restaurants or on airplanes (or really, anywhere with harsh air conditioning).

After countless hours of dogged research to ensure this garment didn’t already exist, Helen and Karen met with a handful of local Chicago manufacturers as the Pocket Poppet’s utilitarian and stylish concept crystallized into a reality.

From there they decided to officially join forces on behalf of all women shivering in the frozen foods section of the grocery store, and thus began their adventures together.
