Our Story


Poppy & Pom is an Australian made and designed children's clothing label founded by mother/daughter duo Heather & Rachel. Our design philosophy is to create something unique for those we care about most; our children. With this in mind we choose quality fabrics, so you can be proud to pass them onto family or friends as your children grow.
Established in 2016, it was almost inevitable from a young age that Rachel would grow up to share her mother's lifelong passion for fashion & design. Heather is a designer and dressmaker by trade and worked from home while her children were young and Rachel was always surrounded by fabrics and patterns. Heather was always busy with another creation be it wedding dresses or children's clothing, which Rachel and her cousins were often modelling (and matching).
  
Rachel was a very creative child, knitting clothing for her dolls, making toys from scraps of material and even trying to teach her cousin how to make a bag. Her passion for design continued as she started making clothing for herself, turning to  her mother for those all important patterns. 
Heather was after a change in her career and as many of Rachel's friends had started having children it seemed only natural to start a new children's clothing label. With Rachel's business experience, Heather's design and patter making skills and their shared love of textiles and fashion it was only natural that the two created Poppy & Pom together.
