About us

It all started when Petit Pli’s Founder and CEO Ryan gained a nephew – Viggo, in late 2016. Shortly after Viggo was born Ryan gifted him clothes. However, on arrival they were already too small. This served as a signal: childrenswear today fails to recognise the dynamic and rapidly changing bodies of Earth’s “LittleHumans”. Inspired by his background in deployable satellites, Ryan created a garment that would grow with his nephew, reducing water and carbon footprints. Soon after, Petit Pli was conceived and Clothes That Grow went on to win multiple awards, starting a sustainable childrenswear revolution. However, the underlying material technology has vast applications within the textile sector.

Job descriptions are difficult to interpret. We understand you might not tick all the above boxes. The truth is, we don’t either. If you feel excited about our upcoming challenges, we encourage you to apply now!
