Founder Simona with the kids around her


Everyday heroes are our future

My name is Simona and I would like to share with you my journey with Our Pocket Hero. It was started with a simple wish to help my friend’s little boy do what other kids do while wearing his insulin pump. That eventually became the beautiful and sustainable clothing collection for all our little ones. I sewed the fist piece myself about 7 years ago, and from that moment I spend all my free time reading and learning everything I could find about diabetes. Being a mom of two active kids, seeing their daily life up close, drove me to take action.

In 2019 I won a social entrepreneurship competition, during which “Reach for Change” (www.reachforchange.org), and the “Ella Fund” (www.theellafund.com) decided to back my dream of helping kids with diabetes. From that moment, my dreams became my mission.

The future belongs to children, and our pocket heroes’ smiles will make our world happier!

We love your TYPE, and let kids do what kids do.



 Our clothes were made to last, both the design and material are durable and our loyal customers refer them as timeless. We wish our clothes to play an active role in your children's lives; and we hope for the garments to be handed over to the younger generation to start their journey all over again. We chose our colours so that they would work both inclusive and unisex.

We knew from the beginning that our fabrics should be GOTS-certified, to be sure that they are produced ethically and that nothing toxic is used at any stage, from the products used to process the cotton to the eco-friendly dying colors. We use recycled paper labels and pay attention to other small but meaningful details to help save our Mother Nature.


People behind

In order to make these beautiful items highly skilled hands are required, and we are committed to creating a healthy working environment for our sewing craftswomen. We keep this goal in mind every day and we sometimes even overhear them singing while sewing :). I am sure you will feel their love when you touch our products.


What's Next?

Oh, we have so many plans and dreams for this brand. We would like to help our pocket heroes enjoy their lives beyond type 1 diabetes. It is our goal to create a strong supporting community, and find more ways for you as a parent, together with our little pocket heroes, to never feel alone.

Join us, make an impact, help us grow, and become a part of this journey.

Purchase the items to your kids, share between your Type 1 diabetes communities about us. Just simply stand by us, and we will do our work to make our heroes life a little bit brighter.
