We are thrilled to present our fleet of mascots. Created to match MiniHumans' suits, our mascots are the perfect buddy for adventures.
Our Mission Crew is made of 100% recycled materials and offcuts, to reduce our impact even further. Inspired by Humankind’s explorations, each Mascot has an intergalactic story; read on below to learn more!
Why are we designing with off-cuts?
Offcuts are our leftover fabrics from our clothing production, they are often too small to use. By cleverly stitching them together, we can utilise every scrap of Petit Pli to make one-of-a-kind mascots. This follows our ethos of zero waste that you can see throughout our range, and right down to our packaging.
Meet the Fleet:
The Mascots are created to match your MiniHuman’s suit, making them the perfect buddy for adventures. Carefully handmade in London from off-cut fabrics, each one has a totally unique combination of colours and textures. They are free from any toxic chemicals, just like our space suits. Crafted from recycled ripstop polyester, the Mascots are strong enough to take-on endless exploring.
CASSIE takes its name from Gamma Cassiopeiae. This is a bright star that forms the middle of a ‘W’ shaped constellation called Cassiopeia, named after the figure in Greek Mythology. It is an eruptive variable star meaning it can vary how bright it looks!
SPUTNIK takes its name from the first artificial satellite to be launched into space by humans. On 4 October 1957 Sputnik 1 was set off by the Soviet Union and orbited earth for three weeks. The round silver satellite had long antenna that sent radio signals back to earth. We reimagined it as a glistening space slug, using its tall eyes to explore.
ECHO is inspired by communications satellite technology. Project Echo was the first in 1960, which bounced microwaves back to a different point on earth. Today we have 4550 satellites orbiting earth, allowing us to communicate, track the weather and travel safely to our destinations.
IVY takes its name from Falcon Heavy - a series of reusable heavy-lift launch vehicles. Falcon Heavy launched three of these huge rockets between 2018 and 2019. These rockets have reusable boosters that return to earth, after carrying cargo and crew into Earth orbit.
LUNA takes its name from the lunar Space Programme which ran between 1959 to 1976. It sent robotic spacecrafts to both orbit and land on the moon. From these twenty four spacecraft missions, we learnt much about the Moon's chemical composition, gravity, temperature, and radiation.
Keep exploring and stay playful,
