In 2006, Petit Collage founder, Lorena Siminovich, hand-crafted a little animal collage using recycled materials as a gift for a pregnant friend. Her friend loved it – and Lorena loved making it! This small, considerate gesture was the beginning of Petit Collage. It not only inspired their company name but their sustainability ethos, too. The Petit Collage brand quickly grew into a successful line of toys, puzzles, games and lifestyle gifts sold all over the world.
In 2020, Petit Collage was acquired by Chronicle Books (a fellow San Francisco company!) and now has a fantastic team spread out across sunny California and historic Bath, England.
