The creator behind Heppa is Heléne Dahlgren who lives in Sweden. Her interest in sewing, in combination with an inquiry from a friend in Stockholm, helped to start the idea behind Heppa. The friend who started a yoga studio several years ago asked Heléne to sew her friend's yoga props. It quickly turned into several orders for others who heard about Heppa. She gets the ingredients from the products from the neighboring field, which is grown on organic land. She sewed all the covers herself.
