(Pl noun; Fr.) Pronounced: Ley ga-mahn
mischievous little kids
Les Gamins was born with the idea of creating simple but beautiful basics for babies and toddlers at an accessible price point. Despite all the options out there for kids’ clothing, we had trouble finding a go-to destination for high-quality, everyday pieces that look good, feel good, and won’t break the bank to replace as our little ones inevitably outgrow them every few months.
So with that in mind, we set out to create what we hoped would become a thoughtfully curated collection of the year-round everyday essentials for your little ones, with a seamless and convenient shopping experience for busy parents. Because rather than searching through racks or pages of clothing for a simple kid’s tee, we believe family time is better spent inventing games, coloring outside the lines, camping, hiking or spontaneous dance-partying. Plus, we take a quality over quantity approach by making pieces that are versatile, and most of our gear is unisex to improve your odds when it’s hand-me-down time.
Every piece has been thoughtfully crafted for everyday comfort and play. We want each one to feel classic and timeless, while capturing the carefree and adventurous spirit of being a kid.
I hope your little ones enjoy wearing the garments as much as I love making them!
STYLISH, CAREFREE CLOTHES FOR LITTLE ONES.
MADE FOR PLAY AND MADE TO LAST.
THOUGHTFULLY, AND SUSTAINABLY.
DESIGNED AND PRODUCED.
OFFERED AT A GREAT VALUE.
In a world where we are often overloaded with options and driven to overconsumption, we wanted to create a curated collection of refined and functional essentials that can be worn over and over, withstand the test of time and play, and be handed down with love.
We put a lot of thought into every piece we design. We don’t make a new collection every few months and we stay away from trends, keeping the focus on styles that are classic and season-less.
Each piece is produced with love and care for both the product and our planet. We use the softest, highest-quality materials, and use natural and organic fibers where available. All of our products are sustainably produced with small-batch, local manufacturers.
At Les Gamins, we design and manufacture our own clothing and sell directly to you, exclusively through our website. By avoiding any middlemen, retail mark-ups and the high costs of brick-and-mortar stores, we are able to offer higher quality product at lower prices.
WEAR SHARE RECYCLE
DID YOU KNOW THAT THE AVERAGE AMERICAN THROWS AWAY
APPROXIMATELY 80 POUNDS OF USED CLOTHING PER YEAR? TEXTILE WASTE
IS ONE OF THE FASTEST GROWING WASTE PRODUCTS IN THE WORLD.
FORTUNATELY, IT IS ALSO ONE OF THE EASIEST TO RECYCLE. LET’S ALL DO
SOME LIGHT LIFTING FOR MOTHER NATURE. IT ADDS UP!
At Les Gamins, we do our best to produce timeless, high-quality pieces that can be worn over and over, and handed down. But even the most durable and beloved pieces eventually wear out, or fall victim to one-too-many spit-up stains or scraped knees. We also know that sometimes it’s just time to purge, out with the old to make space for the new. We’ve partnered with Wearable Collections to make it easy for you to recycle those old clothes and find them a new life.
We send your old kids clothes directly to Wearable Collection. All brands are welcome. Once the clothing arrives, it undergoes a grading process. The top-tier of garments will be professionally sanitized and sent to areas of need where it provides access to affordable second hand clothing. The balance will either be repurposed as textiles or shredded into fibers and turned into things like home insulation, depending on condition. A portion of the proceed of the pieces you donated with go to Every Mother Counts, an organization whose mission we strongly support.
In return, you’ll get a reusable LES GAMINS tote and 15% off a future Les Gamins order for doing your part to help lighten our landfills.
A little something for you, and a little something for Mother Nature.
