Petit Pli


Expandable clothes a grow together with child

Petit Pli is a clothing line developed to grow with your child. Using a pleated structure embedded in the fabric, these ultra-lightweight, waterproof and breathable garments are designed to expand in both directions to provide for the rapid growth of children. With children growing an average of 7 sizes in their first 2 years, Petit Pli aims to drastically reduce the waste inherent in the early life fashion industry. Petit Pli’s continuous size adjustment offers a new way of approaching garment design, one suitable to high growth rates and discrepancies in children’s sizes. These garments are made from technical materials that are ultra-lightweight, waterproof and breathable because children are extreme athletes.
