It all starts with a farmer growing the fibres (cotton mainly). At Petit Bateau, we select long fibres that produce high-quality fabrics. The cotton is deseeded, then put in a spinning machine that turns it into thread. The thread is then knitted together to make the fabric. At Petit Bateau, we knit 38% of the fabrics in our collections at our Troyes factory. The fabric is then dyed. The final stage is making up the clothes, which mainly happens in Morocco, where fabrics are cut out, laid out ready and assembled.
