A brief history

  • The baby clothing brand “Pyret” (Little One) was originally founded in Sweden by The Adamsson family in 1939
  • In 1976 Polarn O. Pyret was created by extending the baby range to include children’s clothing and introducing our now famous stripe
  • Our PO.P ORIGINALS collection is still our most popular today - our stripes will never fade

In 2006 Polarn O. Pyret arrived in the UK and has gone from strength to strength with shops across the UK and Ireland, concessions in selected House of Fraser and Fenwick stores, as well as standalone stores in the best shopping centres in the country.
