EQUITY FOR LITTLEHUMANS
*Capital at Risk
We are happy to share that we are crowdfunding! This is the first ever opportunity to invest in Petit Pli - limited shares available.
From the very beginning, Petit Pli has been on a mission to reduce emissions & waste in the garment industry. For the next generation to have a sustainable future, giving up on this mission is not an option!
With your support our idea became a tangible reality. Petit Pli has grown into a passionate international community of users spanning over 60 countries.
But there is much more ahead of us and we would love for you to continue journeying with us to new horizons.
The journey so far
It all started in 2016 when, as a new uncle, our Founder Ryan became frustrated by how quickly his newborn nephew Viggo outgrew garments & how much waste his speedy growth created. We have achieved some incredible milestones along the way:
Since winning the UK James Dyson Award in 2017, Petit Pli has grown into a global brand, known for a slow approach to design through pairing innovation and sustainability.
Petit Pli’s innovative and circular approach has been recognised by prestigious awarding bodies in fields spanning design, engineering and fashion. These include the UK James Dyson Award, Red Dot Design Award, H&M Global Change Award, Dezeen Award for Best Wearable Design and TIME.
2. ALIGNED PARTNERS
Our shareholders include the institutions above, so you know you'll be in good company! Petit Pli is passionate about pairing innovation with sustainability to realise the solutions of tomorrow.
Which is why Petit Pli is partnered with a manufacturer in Portugal which is certified 100% green energy, manufacturing efficiently using energy from water, the sun, wind & biomass. Our existing Institutional shareholders are well aligned with our mission, you’ll be joining The Royal College of Art, Sky Ocean Ventures and Sustainable Ventures.
3. GLOBAL USERS
With support from you, our growing community of users our idea became a tangible reality. Petit Pli has grown into a passionate international community of users spanning over 60 countries.
We have LittleHumans wearing our designs as far as Sydney and as close as Hackney! While our Tall Humans have journeyed with their MSKs on ascenets to the Alps and exciting descents to their local supermarkets in cities spanning London, LA and New York and many more.
4. INTERDISCIPLINARY TEAM
Petit Pli’s rapid growth is a testament to its young, agile interdisciplinary team - strategically chosen, to support Petit Pli’s short-term growth & to actualise its major vision; to clothe the future of humanity all starting with the next generation.
Our wearable technology is developed in-house by Petit Pli’s team of aerospace engineers, product and fashion designers and sociologists.
5. THE JOURNEY AHEAD
We are really excited about the future. We’ve re-invented childrenswear and pushed the limits of what reusable face coverings can do, but there is so much more ahead.
From a brand perspective, we next plan on increasing our physical presence in the UK and USA! Along with expanding our range to include designs specifically engineered for adults and exploring new applications of our patent-accepted IP. But, fundamentally Petit Pli is a foundational material innovation that we have commercialised & implemented to benefit individuals & humanity today; and will collaborate to find other applications with with our technology can bring value to. A bit like Gore.

Investing in the future, for the future
We raised capital in 2019 from Sky Ocean Ventures. Since then we have completely proven our technologies' differing applications, our determination & agility. We even reached profitability a year after commercialising our first designs in 2019. We want to take it to the next level by including our community of users as shareholders.
The pandemic has been an incredibly challenging period for the entire retail and garment industry. However, interest in sustainability and purpose driven companies within retail has never been higher. This boom, together with Petit Pli’s ability to adapt to a challenging and rapidly changing climate accelerated Petit Pli’s growth in 2020.
