Petit Bateau is OEKO-TEX® Company of the Month for May 2014
The traditional French label Petit Bateau has specialised in the manufacture of clothing and linen for babies and infants for a long time. Over time, the company has expanded its product range to include adult lines - and thanks to the involvement of "hip" designers", they have had great success. The new collections aim to sharpen their profile without neglecting their traditions in the sectors of linen and knitted goods. In doing this, many of the items from the French clothing manufacturer Petit Bateau meet the human-ecological requirements of the OEKO-TEX® Standard 100.
The French manufacturer of linen and knitwear, Petit Bateau, enjoys cult status, particularly in France. Petit Bateau means "little boat" in English. The striking logo, integrated into the centre of bodices, for example, shows a boat with two sails. The brand represents sophisticated, high quality and timeless products.
