ABOUT US

Our studio

La petite Leonne is based in Montreal. We make sustainable goods for modern families. Our creations are gentle on the environment and designed to last.

La petite Leonne was born out of a desire to make the world a better place for our children. We work hard to produce in the cleanest and most caring way possible.

This involves slow production: all dyeing is made with plants in our Montreal workshop and our products are sewn by our local partners. Our waste is reduced as much as possible and our fabric scraps are reused in smaller pieces (makeup remover pads, hair bows, decorative garlands...).

We imagine pieces that you will keep for a long time, because of their quality and functionality. With a little luck, they will also pass down to the next at the end of their journey in your home.

The fabric we work with

We choose our materials carefully, so that they are produced in good conditions for the workers and the environment. We also are looking for high-quality fabric to last a long time. We like to work with muslin, widely woven fabrics that are joined together. This makes them very light and breathable, so you can use them both during the summer and winter.

  • The organic cotton and bamboo muslin

Produced in China, it is OEKO-TEX 100 Standard & Control Union certified. Very soft, this is the fabric we prefer for our children's collection.

  • The organic cotton muslin

Produced in India in GOTS certified factories, this high-quality cotton is our favorite for our linen collection. Light and soft, it is a pleasure to use every day.

BOTANICAL DYE

All our products are hand-dyed with plants in our Montreal workshop. We use dried flowers and plant extracts. No chemicals or plastics are used in the dyeing of our products.

Sewing

We work with local seamstresses. It is very important for us to participate in the local economy by offering our partners advantageous wages and healthy working conditions.

Marie

Marie, the founder, had the idea for La petite Leonne at the birth of her daughter. Anxious to find non-toxic products for her young family, she started working on high-end and durable products that would be entirely dyed with plants. It quickly became a passion and the first collection launched in December 2018 on Etsy.

Creating beautiful colors without harming the environment or those who wear them has become her mission.

Thank you for participating in this great optimistic movement. We believe that now is the time to change things, by changing our ways of consuming. By paying attention to materials, manufacturing processes and by being the change. It is together, through small gestures, and asking ourselves the right questions that we will make great strides. And we'll be there to help you along the way, step by step.
