We don’t care about our clothes staying white. We care about the planet staying green.

On the side of future generations since 1893

Because it's close to our heart, we knitted some brand new garments for your little ones made of organically farmed cotton.

Discover the story of this demanding adventure with us.

Why organic cotton? how?

Virtuous agriculture

Preserving the soil, biodiversity and farmers' health and optimising water – organic cotton is an environmental choice.

A rare resource

Only 1% of the world's surface area is organically farmed. We had to find the best quality from just this 1%!

Quality requirements

Superior cotton/a very long staple so that the knit doesn't fray or pill and lasts longer.

Strict quality assurance

Petit Bateau regularly runs tests with 2 independent European laboratories who check the organic cotton's genetic make-up and that there are no pesticides present

And it's always OEKO-TEX

The European label Oeko-Tex® imposes strict tests, based on international standards. For over 10 years, Petit Bateau has consistently achieved this strict standard of certification ensuring that clothes with this label are safe for you. Which means we're kind to your little ones' skin!

Find out everything about the organic collection

Currently it is just for babies from birth up to a few months old. With an increase in the percentage of the world's surface where cotton is organically farmed (currently only 1%), we will gradually extend to children and adults.

It is designed in Paris by our teams of stylists and designers and is then made in Troyes, France, by our development teams and the materials and accessories purchase teams, our haberdashers who manage our knitting machines, our specialists in dyeing, screen printing, embroidery, our pattern makers and of course our sewers.

Currently, recycled cotton isn't durable enough to meet our quality standards, especially for knitted children's clothing. But we're working on it!

The same way you would wash a standard cotton garment! Tip: Please feel free to look at the "care advice" section on our product pages.

All the dyes we use are labelled Oeko-Tex and they are part of what makes our products kind to skin.
