The Petit Bateau Story

Petit Bateau is named after the nursery rhyme ‘Maman les p’tits bateaux qui vont sur l’eau ont-ils des jambes?’. Which has been sung for generations in France.

In 1918, Etienne Valton – the son of Petit Bateau founder Pierre Valton – was inspired by this nursery rhyme to cut the legs off long johns worn at the time. The classic cotton pants we know today were born!

Safety and care

Petit Bateau is a brand which protects. They design knitted collections for newborns, underwear and sleepwear carrying the Oeko-Tex® label, which imposes rigorous safety controls on clothing. This collaboration has lasted almost 10 years. This certification guarantees Petit Bateau products against the risk of allergies and skin irritation.

Petit Bateau spirit

Petit Bateau creates a playful, joyful universe which speaks to all generations from 0-924 months.They’re serious about quality. T-shirts do not twist, the press stud buttons on their baby bodysuits do not move and their famous cotton retains its softness.
