Valuing local production, quality fabrics and a kind attitude towards the environment, Petite Marin makes eco kids' clothes.

The company was started by two moms in California, who were disappointed by the lack of high-quality garments that were available on the market for their young ones. The quality fabric that Petite Marin uses for its garments is actually sourced from used menswear items, such as shirts—if a fabric is good enough quality for a grown man, it's bound to be suitable for kids as well. Rather than being laden with bold graphics and cutesy prints, the garments have sophisticated looks for young boys and girls. As well as giving new life to fabrics that are already out there, Petite Marin prevents there from being a need for more cotton to be grown.
