What is minimal waste?
The aim is to reduce textile waste during product manufacturing, starting with the design stage. Products are designed and made using a pattern template and not solely based on a drawing.
This means that pattern-making is a key part of the design process. We make sure that the different pieces of the product fit together perfectly like a puzzle on the pattern template to generate minimal waste.
Why adopt a minimal waste design approach?
Between 15% and 20% of textiles used for clothing end up as fabric offcuts. Wasted textiles mean wasted natural resources. It is vital that we tackle the problem at the source by maximising our use of textiles, by minimising waste, and by generating as little fabric waste during the manufacturing process of the product as possible.
For this product, we have gone down from 19% to 9% waste.
When we design our products, we select fabrics and inks that are not harmful to children, and accessories (buttons...) that cannot be swallowed. We make sure our fabrics are not toxic if put in your child's mouth. As well as these standards, we consider your child's safety when designing every aspect of our products. These little details make all the difference!
We design our products with the support of a physiotherapist to understand how we can make kids more autonomous through our clothing. "The challenge is to prevent kids from becoming discouraged. You need to give them actions that they can see are possible so that they'll repeat them until they become automatic and something they can use more generally," explains Agathe, our partner physiotherapist

With easy-to-close zips, a wide neck so they can get dressed on their own without being stuck in their jumper, visual markers so they get their clothing the right way around, and more!
