Ponya Bands just celebrated another birthday, and it's a great time to look back. Started in 2012, Ponya began with Bamboo-Lined Sweatbands, and the crushed velvet lined Non-Slip Headbands soon followed. A few more products later, including theBAMand the newest, theBamboo Jersey Lined Band,and Ponya is going strong with the support of our wonderful community.
Judy Beyerle, our founder, president and band leader, not only has a great product, she's enthusiastic about her bands as well as being active. Customers feel like they know her from race expos and look forward to running into her on the local trails on her weekend hikes.
Judy sat down for the interview below to talk about Ponya's beginnings and the brand basics.
Bamboo fabric and bamboo blends pop up in everything from underwear to entire sportswear brands like Free Fly and Tasc Perfomance. There’s certainly a reason for that!
