Idea

Children can grow 7 sizes in their first 2 years on Earth. This contributes towards 183 million items of outgrown & unused childrenswear being hidden in homes across the UK.

Frustrated by these facts, and using his background in aeronautical engineering, Ryan set out to innovate within the $252bn childrenswear market for a LittleHuman called Viggo, his nephew.

Ryan developed Petit Pli’s patented textile from the ground up; its versatility enables clothes to expand through 7 sizes. The technology has moved from a UK James Dyson Award winning proof of concept (2017) to a scaled technology in June 2019, with applications in sister segments, PPE, winning TIME’s Best Invention of 2020. Our Adultwear is shortlisted for the 2021 Dezeen Award for Best Wearable Design & released in 2021.

Starting as a student project, Petit Pli has grown into a D2C business with an international community of users spanning 60 countries, gained support from Sky Ocean Ventures & Sustainable Ventures and grew its revenue by more than 500% in financial year 20/21 to £333k.

Consumer interest in sustainable fashion has never been higher. With its patent granted, and multiple potential IP applications, Petit Pli seeks to capitalise on these potential B2B opportunities alongside scaling its D2C platform reach in the UK & USA; with the long term aspiration of becoming the GORE of sustainable textile innovations.
