Polkadot USA was launched in 2001 in New York City by owner-designer Debra Schoenau. Debra’s three children have been her continuing inspiration. Her two daughters are featured in many of the photographs, and her 80 plus year old Mom loves wearing Polkadot too!

Debra has a passion for creating the contemporary, classically feminine loungewear she is well known for. It is her continuing pleasure to provide customers with collections that are comfortable and multifunctional.

Polkadot USA is known for their delicate knits made in England, where they specialize in fine knitwear and beautiful detailing. The collections are form fitting and exquisitely soft.

Each seasonal collection contains pieces that can be worn directly from sleepwear to outerwear, including the most comfortable PJ’s you’ll ever wear and sexy little nighttime chemises.

From Nancy S…
“ I know your line for many years and am a huge fan and have bought my favorite pj’s and loungewear from you. “

If you could only feel this fabric you would understand what we are talking about, so let us tell to you a little ..

Our Classic Cardigan is the perfect thin and light weight piece for Summer, spending the day in the city, popping in and out of air conditioned places, keeping you warm but not hot. It does not wrinkle, and is perfect for layering. In Winter, paired with a Polkadot turtle or other long sleeved top, it’s the perfect layering combo for cozy warmth while being thin, light and cloud soft. It’s also great choice for wearing over exercise wear.

From Leslie C…..
“ I don’t know what I would do without my Polkadot cardigans. I love wearing them day and night “

Our nighttime chemises are are both sexy for sleepwear and can also be worn for beach or resort wear.

From Marjorie B…..
“ My husband loves when I wear Polkadot – it feels so soft & sexy! “

For expecting mothers, the stretchy fit is excellent during and after pregnancy. There are a variety of styles that can take her from 3 months to 9 months. Pairing with our matching baby blanket makes an excellent gift!

Polkadot’s versatility is so relevant when traveling! Put it in your carry bag on your next flight! So lightweight, it takes very little space in your luggage. Easy care - will hang dry overnight & will not shrink. Is also machine washable.

From Carol S….
“ I took it on my last flight and it was soooo comfortable, light and pretty “

Polkadot USA is available through our website.

Debra’s degrees in psychology from Boston University and fashion design from Parsons School of Design NYC are strongly paired with her retail and wholesale experience which includes being Department Manager and Associate Buyer at Bonwit Teller. These, along with her strong natural aesthetic, have been the backbone for developing and building the Polkadot USA brand.
