For items that have already shipped, we are happy to exchange items for size within 30 days of receipt, and / or give store credit which can be used at any time. We do not offer refunds, as we are a small business and each item is made to order for the customer - we cannot return due to buyer's remorse.

Exchange items must be unwashed and unworn. You will have to pay the return shipping and we will pay for the cost of shipping the new item.

When unpacking a new shirt or hoodie with a print, you might notice a vinegar-like smell or an off-white residue. Don't worry, that's not unusual - it's from a fixation agent applied during the printing process and it's not permanent.
Neither the residue nor the smell is permanent and both should go away after one wash.
Collaborations, Wholesale, Charities
We'd love to hear from brands and people who share our beliefs that girls and women deserve to be educated and empowered. Please contact us for additional information about partnerships and collaborations.
We are open to working with new charities and non-profits that empower and educate girls and women. We look for charitable partners that align with our goal of supporting girls and women in education and STEM, and who will be partners by actively promoting our products and partnership.
We offer a 30% discount on all our items with a minimum order of $1,500 and an additional $75 for deliveries outside the United States and Canada. Payments must be made up front and in full. Please get in touch if you're interested in carrying our products.
La Petite Écolière chose its first charity recipient, Plan International Canada because of our shared belief that when girls are educated, healthy and empowered, they can lift themselves and everyone around them out of poverty.
Plan International works in 52 developing countries across Africa, Asia and the Americas. Plan International educates its donors on both the transformative effects of education for girls, and on what is keeping girls out of schools in many countries - circumstances that are unimaginable to us here in Canada. By giving children, families and communities the tools they need to break the cycle of poverty, they begin the cycle of progress by creating sustainable solutions for improving their own lives.
Plan International also helps the communities they work with in the areas of health, water and sanitation, protection from violence, economic security, sexual health, and emergency relief.
In the future, La Petite Écolière plans to have specific product lines and themes support specific initiatives. We also collaborate with our Brand Ambassadors to support causes close to their hearts.
