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.

Why organic cotton? how?
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%!
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!
And for the ideal present
give a 100% natural gift
And we haven't stopped there!
In summer 2020, all the cotton garments in the newborn collection will be made from organic cotton.
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.
