Earth's Hidden Figures
2020 has been a confusing time for humans Little and Tall, to help reduce the confusion around Covid-19 Petit Pli released its first comic Mission 1: Unstick The Sticky Alien!
To Petit Pli, supporting social justice is integral to creating an environment on Earth which we are proud to live in and to be borrowed by the next generation; for we do not inherit the Earth from our ancestors, we borrow it from our children.
We felt it was imperative to create a tool for parents to use when LittleHumans ask them “What is Black Lives Matter?”. Why are people protesting? How can I help?”
The Petit Pli Team created our second comic, Mission 2: Earth’s Hidden Figures for LittleHumans, to highlight the importance and significance of the Black Lives Matter movement.
We hope our comic helps to nurture LittleHumans' innate curiosity and inspires them to never stop asking about Earth's hidden figures.
Petit Pli's MSK-erade
Fellow Earth Inhabitant,
In 2017 Petit Pli began its childrenswear revolution. Since then, Petit Pli has focused on problem solving for Earth’s LittleHumans, until the MSK - developed during the Covid-19 lockdown - became our first ever commercially available design for adults. Since the beginning, Dezeen has covered our sustainable innovations, from initial student project, to awarding Petit Pli the Best Wearable Design of the Year in 2018, and then outlining the story of our Beta(MSK) after its launch in July 2020. Thank you Dezeen for supporting our mission from the start!
Petit Pli's MSK was engineered to compliment the change Covid-19 had on our habits, attitudes and way of thinking - while still embodying Petit Pli’s ethos of problem solving, sustainability & innovation.
Each MSK has a versatile structure that has been engineered to trace the curvature of your face comfortably, with a secure, replaceable nose wire and internal filter pocket. Made from recycled bottles, the team at Petit Pli developed the face covering as a re-usable product, designed with a waste-reducing pattern and Petit Pli’s award-winning patent-pending structure.
Single-use plastic pollution has risen due to the worldwide demand for disposable PPE, threatening our oceans and marine life. Did you know humanity is at risk of having more masks than jellyfish in the Mediterranean sea? 🌊
