“I have always worn scarves, pashminas, ruanas and ponchos because I love freedom of motion. No sleeves that drag and squeeze my arms, no pullovers that destroy my hairdo and makeup. I love simplicity, freedom and elegance,” says Kateřina Samková, founder of my.pled.
The success story started unwinding in 2014 when Kateřina Samková realized that she would not be able to satisfy her passion and obsession on the market and decided to take things in her own hands. She joined forces with fashion designer Jan Šimr, with whom she spent three years developing various patterns, testing different fabrics and seeking solutions so that every woman could choose her own my.pled. The result: over 20 different blanket poncho patterns and 10 fastening options, from cuts to elegant buckles.
In 2017, Helena Harabinová joined my.pled as a team member and a partner. Helena proved to be a great addition to the team as someone who can sell my.pled to women. “I fell in love with my.pled instantly. I was even one of the first customers. I have spent all my career in business and I believe that when you marry your work with your passion, it must work out,” says Helena Harabinová (Sales/Marketing Director).
my.pled is an original Czech brand focusing on the ruana or blanket poncho as a fashion item offering women a simple yet elegant dressing option that will keep them warm, besides having many other advantages.
