Clothes that grow with your child
by Petit Pli

Children grow seven sizes in their first two years on Earth and this equates to a lot of wasted clothing.

Petit Pli's patent pending rainproof garments are pleated in such a way that they can grow bi-directionally to custom fit a range of 7 sizes. Designed to fight against the waste and unethical supply chains of the fast fashion industry, Petit Pli aims to help raise future generations to value longevity and innovation in some of the most intimate products of our lives. Trained as an Aeronautical Engineer, Ryan Mario Yasin created Petit Pli during his studies at Imperial College and the RCA.
