Our Story - We Love Pockets!
Alina Sol®, INC launched in the end of 2020, by a solo female entrepreneur, and in the last 3 years has grown into a brand with customers all around the world!
We are now based in Boston, MA - but the idea for PocketCor® was originally concepted in New York City in 2018.
The PocketCor® Belt was created as a solution to a frustrating problem. Alissa, our Founder, created the PocketCor® Belt after joining a gym in New York City after college. She quickly realized that none of her leggings or shorts had pockets and she had no where to put her phone, keys, cards, and headphones at the gym. Alissa decided to go shopping at her favorite retailers in NYC for new leggings with multiple pockets to solve this problem. However she was surprised when all of her favorite retailers said "we don't sell leggings with pockets here." After 3 major activewear stores turned her away, Alissa set out to find a stylish solution to her pocket-less clothing problem, and could not find one. Alissa did not like the restrictive feeling of having to carry a bag everywhere she went when wearing activewear She also felt every accessory on the market was too bulky, too flimsy, looked unflattering/outdated, or did not function properly. Alissa taught herself how to sew by watching Youtube videos and created the first PocketCor Belt in her NYC apartment. She spent 2 years after that learning about fabrics, sourcing materials, finding a factory, and developing the product to work correctly - no bounce, no rolling, and secure sliding pockets. PocketCor® was created to blend into our clothes. Originally designed to look like the waistband of leggings. It is not bulky, it has no external pockets, is very slim, and the pockets are separate individual compartments.
You no longer need to carry heavy bulky bags 24/7, carry everything in your hands, or wear outdated accessories. You can use PocketCor® to add five pockets around your core, to any outfit in your closet! The PocketCor Belt can be used for travel, workouts, carrying medical devices, running errands, dog walks, concerts, festivals, amusement parks, and more!
