Winner of Global Change Award 2018 - Petit Pli

Outfits that expand with the child while reducing environmental impact? That's the innovation by Petit Pli, winner of Global Change Award 2019.

Parents struggle to keep up in every way, including dressing their little ones as they crawl, climb and explore the world. As children grow 7 sizes in their first 2 years, there’s an appalling amount of children’s clothes that are bought but barely or never worn before they’re outgrown. This patent-pending innovation offers a smarter solution by presenting durable and appealing clothes that grow with the child, with a diverse range of sizes from 9 months to 4 years. Inspired by space engineering and the ingenious folding techniques of origami to maximize volume in a minimum amount of space, these garments are windproof, rainproof and folded in a way that allows for tops and bottoms to expand and fit each child for years.

“Winning the Global Change Award and receiving the grant means that we now have the targeted support and means to accelerate Petit Pli’s growth alongside innovators desiring to champion innovation and circularity in fashion. The monetary injection will allow us to actually action the knowledge that we will acquire through the accelerator programme. During the forthcoming year we will focus on growing our team and the business,” says Ryan Yasin from Petit Pli.
