Welcome to our world! My husband and I began our journey together in 2009, and since then, we've been blessed with three wonderful kiddos: our son and twin girls. Nestled in the heart of the Twin Cities (MN), we've experienced our fair share of chilly winters. And like many parents in colder climates, we found ourselves endlessly buying mittens and gloves over the years. But where do they all disappear to? It's like the mystery of the vanishing socks phenomenon...

Despite trying various solutions like clips, strings, and snaps, those pesky hand warmers always seemed to go missing. I knew there had to be a better way to streamline our mornings and bring order to the chaos. How could I spare my kids the hassle of losing their mittens on a seemingly weekly, or even daily, basis? And how could I protect their little wrists from the cold and snow every time they ventured outside?

In my quest for a solution, I scoured the market but couldn't find exactly what I envisioned: a warm, sustainable children's winter puffer jacket with built-in mittens. Determined to fill this gap, I turned to sketching, seeking input from my own kids and their friends on everything from color schemes to functionality. After countless iterations and meticulous attention to detail, Arctic Wave was born... 

Arctic Wave is more than just a product; it's a labor of love from our small family business. It's been quite the journey, especially navigating the challenges of manufacturing during the COVID era. But we persevered, and I'm thrilled to share our creation with you. Thank you for joining us on this adventure! Your feedback is invaluable as we continue to refine and perfect our jackets, ensuring they meet the needs of families like yours. Together, let's embrace warmth, comfort, and a little bit of magic in every Arctic Wave jacket.
