Les Petits Chapelais

Our Story

 

 
 
 

 

Les Petits Chapelais is the farm in Brittany where Dominique was born.          
It was founded by her grandmother at only 18 years old. 

Since then, this happy place has seen many children.  
Dominique’s first daughter Héloise is the 100th great grandchild!    
    
Les Petits Chapelais New York was born out of 3 sisters’
creativity & passion -    a dancer, a costumer and a clothing designer.     
A modern dancer, Dominique came to the U.S. from France
as an exchange student with Merce Cunningham.  
Bedridden during her pregnancy (and used to moving!), she
began crafting baby clothes with her sister Nathalie.  
The boutique opened on September 11, 2001.    

Today, Les Petits Chapelais brings European savoir faire from the
most creative designers in the world.    

Les Petits Chapelais is always looking for unique, committed,
responsible craftspeople who have a real love for children and
understand and respect their world and ours.

Your eyes will be delighted with the way Dominique     combines
all the many  collections…    

Like a dance!
