Petit Voyageur is a premium export brand for children – produced in Peru. It was born in 2013 from the hearts of a Japanese and a Peruvian friendship looking to create simple elegance, contemporary styles, close to nature and quality clothing. The brand redefined quality by using hand-picked choice of Peruvian Pima Cotton, organic certified cotton and socially responsible practices with cotton producers around the valleys of Peru.
The brand was crafted around the character of the Petit Voyageur “The Little Traveler” telling stories inspired of his many explorations around the nature and cultures of the world – every day is an adventure, every days his imagination is running wild. The Petit Voyageur is in synch with mother nature – protecting, caring and defending it through urban landscapes and wildlife.
The first collection was inspired of the Japanese culture; represented through Seigaha and Sakura prints the ocean waves and flora. The Asanoha repeating pattern is considered a representation of youth and freedom, often used in children’s kimonos back in the olden times. The color palette was kept to ethereal light tones. Every new collection is considerate of nature and reveals a new cultural ethos. Petit Voyageur has been awarded for its role of promoting Peruvian craftmanship and refined materials.
Why organic pima cotton?
Our responsibility with the nature and society
We use organic cotton for these reasons:
Producing organic cotton uses lower carbon due to lesser fuel and energy consumption. Because it goes through a chemical free production process, it also prevents water contamination. The health of workers are also not compromised. Lastly, the use of excessive fertilizers and pesticides also cause irreparable damage to the environment.
Organic clothing products are safer as manufacturers adhere to very rigid and stricter manufacturing standards. This is not only to minimize negative impact to the environment but to ensure customer value as well by subscribing to very high ethical standards such as Fairtrade Cotton, Better Cotton Initiative, FLO International and other global movements that promote organic cotton. BT (or genetically modified seeds) need chemicals to make non-organic cotton resistant to pests and diseases. In short, It is not good for nature nor for our children.
Avoid Allergies and
There are no chemical retentions from organic cotton clothing; thus, people with allergies or with specific chemical sensitivity will greatly benefit from using organic cotton in clothing fabric. It feels better on your skin too even if you are not suffering from allergies or chemical sensitivities. In addition, most of those who are loyal to organic cotton clothes swear that it smells better than the usual cotton types. By supporting organically manufactured clothing, you can be more comfortable wearing clothes and will worry less about health and medical concerns.
Helps Everyone Become Responsible Citizens
Organic cotton clothing patronage helps consumer to become a responsible citizen; one that is fully aware about everyone’s responsibility to help preserve a sustainable environment. Organic cotton clothing serves as a reminder to everyone that natural is healthier and cost effective in the long run.
True citizens of
the world collection
Peruvians live in an extraordinary place, where mother nature works her magic, giving us a splendid flora and fauna.
The diversity of colors and species create a unique place, full of majesty, like the Andes of Peru. Where, there is a special and furry little friend, a relentless traveler, very curious and sociable. This one is characterized by having white hair around its eyes, resembling large eyeglasses, and is known by many as the spectacled bear, and by others, as the Andean bear.
Today, spectacled bears sadly face an unpredictable future. Their survival depends both on climatic conditions and on the flora and fauna of the Andean forests in which they live. Recent environmental changes and deforestation have caused an increase in the vulnerability of this species.
That is why in this collection we show a world full of color, thanks to nature. And a curious traveler going to join his herd through the forest, with his distinctive backpack, full of delicious blueberries and sweet mountain cherries.
