"After literary and artistic studies, I put my creativity to sleep for the first few years to devote myself to one of my passions: travel. So I started my career in tourism. "A road trip in 2013 in the United States, that the brand was born. Far from everything, I had finally given a sense to my creativity, the right time had come to get started. I started to expressing on tote-bags and over the years, I have declined the brand on different supports. The creation of prototypes, the research of materials, colors and the creation of patterns are at the heart of my creative process. "

Questions of ethics and production quality are at the heart of the brand. Petite Mila has worked with trusted partners from the start for printing, production and tailoring.
Each creation is developed in an eco-responsible approach favoring natural materials such as organic cotton, vegetable wax and pure and organic essential oils.
All our textile creations meet GOTS standards. THE global benchmark for evaluating organic fibers. This standard brings together several requirements since the harvesting of raw materials, the preparation from a social and environmental point of view and labeling. Since organic cotton is grown mainly in India, Petite Mila has chosen a clothing workshop located there. This garment workshop is certified GOTS, SA8000, (label ensuring the human rights of employees and guaranteeing strict standards of hygiene, security and well-being in the professional environment) and member of the WFTO (fair trade).
Slow fashion - Slow life
