Latest Petit Pli News

Kids clothes that grow with them

May 11, 2021

TribLIVE's Daily and Weekly email newsletters deliver the news you want and information you need, right to your inbox. Just imagine buying clothes for your child that they didn’t outgrow in one year. After seeing how fast his nephew outgrew his clothes, aeronautical engineer Ryan Yasin set out to address the problem and created Petit Pli , a cool line of clothes for kids featuring pleats that expand and contract to grow as your child grows. Yasin, 27, said he’s more of a problem solver than a designer and that his goal was to create a solution that would benefit the entire value chain, from the environment, manufacturer, retailer and the user. “With my prior research focused on deployable satellite panels, it was my desire to overlap science and art to bring real-world solutions that could be adopted in a rapid time scale that pushed me to create Petit Pli,” he said. “When my nephew was born, I found a cool top, which I sent to him in Denmark. But by the time it arrived, he had already outgrown it. This served as a signal that garments made for children were not suitable for their speedy growth.” The line was designed to be worn as rainproof outerwear, but the soft breathable fabric can also be worn as clothing — by itself on warmer days, or with layers underneath in colder weather. The durable, machine-washable and fast-drying ripstop fabric is perfect for climbing, crawling and being a kid. Petit Pli pants have reinforced knees, the tops have expandable pockets and the garments have reflective tabs for added visibility. Petit Pli fabric is made from recycled plastic bottles that reduce the waste, costs and pollution involved in the clothing manufacturing process, and addresses the longevity of children’s clothes. Kids — or ‘little Humans,’ as Yasin calls them — can wear the same pullover top or pants from age 9 months to 4 years old, which is also helpful when outfitting a sibling. “We’re a material technology company at heart. We identify problems and engineer desirable solutions that are out of this world,” Yasin said. “Our aim is to elevate the potential of humans while being responsible to humanity. We’re clothing the future of humanity; we’re just starting with the next generation.” Support Local Journalism and help us continue covering the stories that matter to you and your community.
