New brands join Tape à l’Œil
With our #BoostTalent mission, we’re always trying to develop people’s skills so we can shape the future together. As part of this, we’ve decided to bring in some selected partner brands to give you more choice when stocking up on fashion for ages 0 to 16 with us.
What do you mean, new brands on TAO?? What are they? Are they well-known? New? Small? Big? We’re about to tell you everything you need to know!
These are leading, emerging and innovative brands on the children’s market that align with our values and have won us over with their expertise, eco-friendly approaches and products.
We think their designs will be exactly what you’re looking for: more responsible fashion with high-quality products that are still affordable. We’re proud to have them on our website and hope you’ll like them just as much as we do.
Some brands you’ll know already: we were keen to have them on board. Other brands may be new to you, and are well worth exploring. Without further ado, here are the brands!
We’ve partnered with two types of brands
– ECO-FRIENDLY BRANDS
We appreciate that they look after the environment and have great products.
KI ET LA
We just love Ki ET LA®, who make sunglasses for kids who are always on the go! Kids and parents alike will love these cool and carefully designed glasses this summer. The unbreakable, extra-light frames are a real bonus for little daredevils. The Category 4 lenses for babies and Category 3 lenses for older kids (polarised from age 4) protect young eyes no matter where you are: in town, at the seaside or in the mountains. With bright colours and zig-zag patterns available, little ones can express their own unique style!
Tape à l’Œil loves: this stylish pair with technical features to keep your kids looking good and protected all summer long.

Minus® was founded to create opportunities for children and adults to be together. They have fun and clever games and books that you can take anywhere: have a great time learning, chatting and playing with Minus! The paper comes from FSC-certified forests, the ink is vegetable-based and the products are printed with love in France.

Tape à l’Œil loves: this is an eco-friendly brand that’s made in France and spices up a child’s environment.
LA VIE EST BELT
La Vie est Belt® is a brand selling accessories made by the disabled in France from recycled materials. They reuse scraps of fabric, tyres and fire hoses to give a second lease of life to materials that would otherwise have ended up in the bin!
Tape à l’Œil loves: this is a creative and optimistic project proving that we can make the world a better place by reducing social exclusion and upcycling materials.
STOP! MICRO WASTE® is a charity set up by a group of surfers who love nature. To combat water pollution, they created the Guppyfriend®. This is a bag for the washing machine that catches clothes fibres loosened by the cycle to stop them going into rivers and oceans. It also protects clothes by stopping them rubbing or bobbling.
Tape à l’Œil loves: using the Guppyfriend® protects the planet and makes clothes last longer. It’s a step towards a more responsible consumer approach.
GIFTS FOR CHANGE
Gifts for Change is a business that gives everyone the chance to get involved with a cause dear to them by buying eco-friendly products. They call this Engagement Par l’Objet® [Items for Engagement]. Their Animals to Wear bracelets are made of beech wood (from sustainably managed French forests) and the strap is made of linen (European and woven in France). They’re produced in France by the disabled. For each bracelet bought, 1 euro goes to protecting endangered species.
Tape à l’Œil loves: these are eco-friendly bracelets made in France that help save the animals.
