About

 
What We Do  

We all wear hats in winter. When temperatures are low, it’s important to cover our heads. This adds to our comfort when we take long winter walks or when we do our chores in or outside the city. Being someone absolutely addicted to wearing a hat, for me, personally, going out without a hat is absolutely unthinkable. At a certain point, however, it turns out to have a great number of hats so you can match them with all your daily outfit. Not to mention that our style of dressing while at the work and in our leisure time are very different from each other. No need to pile up a great number of hats though. You can have one or two boring hats and have pompoms that are different by design. We offer you exactly that – pompoms for every day, mood, and occasion that can turn your dull hat into a fashion accessory. By using our special clipping system, you can decorate scarfs, jackets, bags, or whatever item of clothes you wish. To allow for even more various combinations, we offer our pompons in two sizes. And for active people who like winter sports, we provide the option for attaching a pompom to a helmet. When on the slope, it is better to stand out – our favourite statement is “Oh, I’m with a black helmet on!”.

How It Works  

Each MyPomPom is accompanied with an attached ABS plastic slot, which we currently produce on a 3D printer. Additionally, you get a pin made of flexible plastic material - also produced on a 3D printer. You can easily pierce the flexible plastic pin through knitted fabrics. This is how the pin attaches to your accessory while its elasticity makes it completely safe to use. Then the pin goes into the ABS slot. Because the plastic materials of the slot and the pin share a different level of elasticity and because of the special design of the enter slot point, the two parts fit very well together, and thanks to the special design of the opening slot. All this makes the fastening very stable and reliable.

 

For the A/W 16 season, we created 30 models for pompoms, each with its own style and mood. The diversity we offered targets all kinds of occasions and everyone’s preferences to find their special pompon. From the moderate VolcanicGrey to the flashy CosmicWaves – it’s all there within the range of the collection. Make each day different and full of color with MyPomPom.

Specs & Features  

All MyPomPoms are made of 100% acrylic yarn. We offer two sizes – 6cm and 8cm in diameter. 

 

We started with a specially designed buckle that easily attaches your pompon to any knitted fabric such as a hat, scarf, or whatever comes to mind. We found a way to fix the pompoms to helmets and to any smooth and solid materials by adding a strip of Velcro sticker to the bottom of the pins. In this way, you can switch the pompom from your hat to your helmet and then back time and time again.

 Project Timeline

 Who are we

 So, here we are! MyPomPom team: Lyubomira and Tzvetin!  

Sharing life and common dreams! I, Lyubomira, being one happy mom with a handful experience in fashion and lingerie design, have a great passion for designing small intricate objects and ornaments. With lots of love and care I pick for you the best MyPomPom selection of designs, colors and teases. Tzvetin is a web developer and programmer taking care of all the technical MyPomPom aspects. And of course, he is the greatest fan. He is one big of a PomPom ;).

Where the idea comes from  

Last winter during one of our ski trips with friends, playing silly and having fun, we noticed that all of us have pompons, but one. And we thought how cool will be if we can just clip a pompon on his hat as well as change the other pompons and mix-match them based on the occasion, our clothes and mood. It took us some time to come up with the most practical way to clip it so MyPomPom is really easy and convenient to be used. We picked cool basic colors and combinations that we hope you like.

Risks and challenges

Our foremost intention and greatest challenge is to turn the daily routine of our customers into a more colorful, funny, and different experience. We would like to deliver products of great quality paired witha dedicated customer service.
Currently, we produce the special clipping system on a 3D printer and inspect each single item to make sure you are receiving a product of excellent quality. We believe that producing the clipping system on a mould immensely decreases the possibilities for making mistakes during their manufacturing or for delivering defective articles.
We will definitely keep the manual production of our hats. Our plans are to expand the range of the models and yet to provide room for you to leave your personal imprints when you wear them. In addition, the process of making the hats by hand is a great way for the elderly women who knit them to increase their income and boost their self-esteem.
We intend to invest into the creation of a machine for an automated production of pompoms. Such a machine will need to be carefully designed and specifically tailored for our needs. It is impossible for us to utilize the machines of that kind that are already available because we attach the slot part of the clipping system to the pompom itself. This personalized approach is what necessitates the invention of a customized appliance of our own conception.
Last, but not least, we plan to continue with the enlargement of our collection. Fact is, we have another 30 models in the pipeline for next season as well as three more sizes and new materials to use for manufacturing the pompoms.
