Coq en Pâte is a children’s accessories and fashion brand, which places ethics in the heart of all creative processes and engaged socially and environmentally.
Because producing and consuming isn’t destroying, we wish to demonstrate and share our belief that it is possible to create, produce and sell whilst respecting humans and their environment.
Our products are manufactured in India out of organic cotton in certified factories, stationnery and beach kits are mainly made in France in ecologial materials.
Backpacks, rucksacks, t-shirts, bodysuits, pouches, valinty cases, bibs, sun hats, beach kits ... are all products that can be both pretty and responsible today.
Publishing choices are made through our commitments especially focused today on endagered species with our partner SOS/IUCN with the will to sensibilize and educate children to environmental concern.

Illustrators, artists, graphists, designers who share our values (Byvirgo, Tinou Le Joly Senoville, Gwé, Janro to name but a few) give our products their originality and stylishness where modernism sits side by side with vintage feel and artistic bent. Collections have successively followed creative themes in partnerships such as with the film Océans by Jacques Perrin, the brand Petit Bateau (“J’aime ma Mer” collection), the National Natural History Museum, the Rodin and the Prado museum.
The meeting with Madeleine Rodgers (MIBO) and her animal paper toy creations prompted Coq En Pâte to commit more firmly to animal conservation, and to sign a partnership with the IUCN and its Save Our Species initiative. While the visual identity and design style flow directly from Madeleine’s universe, the collection’s thematic direction is tightly linked to current SOS activities in nature conservation.
Our loyal partners for production in India and France must also here receive thanks, as without their high standards for quality, their reactivity and adaptability, Coq En Pâte would not have survived!
We must keep improving, remain on the lookout for better production methods, lighter logistics. It is our goal for the next few years to be at every level a brand with a net positive impact on the planet… The renewed dynamism of a fashion industry with new brands, new production lines, new materials utilising recycled and natural fibres, spurs us on to continue fighting for our common benefit.
