About Us

Hello there! My name is Theresa Atanga, the founder and designer behind Le Petit Lapin. I was born and raised in a small coastal town near Copenhagen, Denmark, but moved to California as a teenager, and it is here I reside with my husband and 2 kids, our design studio is located in Old Town, Los Gatos. 

I founded Le Petit Lapin in 2021 when my first born was a year old, I had spent the last year encompassed with all the amazing things of motherhood, but was also looking for something to fulfill myself, outside, of motherhood. Pair that with a new burning passion for all things children's wear, a strong creative passion and a talent for design, I started sourcing factories that had strict sustainability standards and designed my first collection of organic heirloom pieces made with non-toxic dyes and organic cotton fabrics. I also aimed towards being a 100% recycled plastic company all the way from factory to customer. We can't do it all, nor should that be on our shoulders, but choosing organic, with further sustainability in mind, is a great way to start, while also enjoying parenthood to the fullest. 

To me, dressing my children is one of the small peaks of my day, the 3 second head tilt and smile you make after looking at your beautifully dressed baby is one of the many small joys in between all the mess of baby-hood, all while you may or may not be wearing yesterdays sweatpants yourself.

Le Petit Lapin is designed with uniqueness in center and earth tones at the core. All our designs are intended to add a muted spark, bringing joy to the children wearing it, and with lots of "easy on the eye" factor for parents. 

My wish is for you to get as much life out of my garments as possible, they are designed for longevity and durability, save it for future babies, regift, resell or save for grand babies, I promise it will hold up.

We are proud that our clothe is sustainably made in India by one of the leading factories promoting sustainability in the region that carry an OEKO-TEX certification and completely toxic-dye free.

All our designs are hand drawn by myself, in our studio located in Los Gatos, California.

Thank you for doing your part, thank you for loving our products, thank you for joining the Le Petit Lapin family.
