Founders With a Solid Foundation
Poplin & Co was founded by Shadi Ahmadi and Antonio Krezic, a creative couple from Vancouver, BC.
Shadi Ahmadi, Poplin & Co’s Design Director earned her Bachelor’s Degree in Fashion Design & Technology from Kwantlen Polytechnic University in 2011. Since her graduation she has been busy designing and developing apparel for well established brands such as Saxx Underwear, Stance and Helly Hansen. Her obsession for creating prints fuels the creativity of Poplin & Co and drives her to constantly push the boundaries in men’s fashion.
Antonio Krezic, Poplin & Co’s head of marketing brings almost a decade of online and rich media marketing experience, having done campaigns for many international apparel and sports brands like The NBA, The Gap, Smith, Ibex among many others. Much like his partner he is obsessed with design and pushing the limits of creative communication.
Printed Button Up Shirt Experts
With their exclusive focus on printed button ups Poplin & Co has managed to create an amazing selection of refined streetwear with designs that can’t be found anywhere.
Poplin & Co shirts come in long or short sleeves and feature designs like my personal favourites, Cool Cats, Garden Botanical, and Pears.
Poplin & Co’s Design Director explained that she made sure her shirts were made with high quality 100% cotton fabric and with the customer in mind.
“ We’ve spent a lot of time working closely with our manufacturers to develop a high quality Cotton fabric that can last through wash and wear to suit the lifestyle of the modern guy.
We didn’t want to create clothing that only looked good, we wanted our clothes to be easy to care for and long lasting. That’s why we made sure to offer shirts that can be washed right at home, guaranteed to withstand shrinkage and color fading.
We also believe that it is our social responsibility to get away from fast fashion by creating products that are long lasting and leave a smaller environmental footprint by using natural fibres.”
Designer Brand Without the Designer Price
Poplin & Co provides quality, fit and a one of a kind print assortment. They are a designer brand without the “designer” price tag.
