Ulla Popken’s heritage goes back a long way. In the year 1880 the Popken Textile Company was founded by Johann Popken in Germany. In 1968, Freidrich Popken and his wife Ulla opened a maternity and baby wear store in Oldenburg. They noticed a high demand for plus sized clothing among women who were having trouble finding it and were turning to their store for purchases. This encouraged the couple to found Ulla Popken, a clothing business dedicated to plus sized fashion clothing. Soon the next generation of the Popken family came to North America and was known as Popken Fashion Group USA LLC. It opened in 1993, headquartered outside Baltimore, Maryland and has continued growing over the last 20 years.
