ABOUT THE FOUNDERS
Hania and Yasmine are two childhood friends from Paris who are passionate about fashion, design and travel. Hania is mother to 2-year-old daughter Alya and Yasmine is a newlywed. Both share a background in business communication and Ecommerce. After working for various companies in Paris, London, and New York, they decided to make their own creative project.
IT ALL STARTED IN PARIS
One afternoon, in Hania's petite apartment in Paris' 18 arrondissement, two ideas discovered each other. Yasmine was discussing the fun aspects of receiving her cosmetic subscription boxes. Hania was sharing her newly discovered French designers and the multitude of handmade creations for children. At that moment “My Petite French Box” was born.
Throughout their numerous travels to the US, Yasmine and Hania noticed that, although many people appreciated French products, the main focus was usually oriented toward cosmetics and food. This left very few opportunities for kids’ items.
My Petite French Box is, for us, a way to share French savoir-faire, support French brands, small designers, and share beautiful and authentic products that kids and their families will appreciate.
The year My Petite French Box was born also happened to be a year full of happy moments marked by new births in Hania and Yasmine’s families and circle of friends. While searching for meaningful (yet useful) gift ideas they thought of creating the Newborn Gift, a set that includes the essential products for those magical but also hectic first months of the new baby and family.
