Mini kiwi is born from the meeting of parents and entrepreneurs wishing to reinvent the baby world by offering a range of eco-friendly, modern and quality products. We have forged strong partnerships with designers, artisans and artists from here and elsewhere. Our primary mission is to make the cloth diaper a trendy and reliable object.
We work hand in hand with several local seamstresses that are at the heart of our creative spirit and high quality of our design.
Our collaboration with a Mexican entrepreneur, mother of three children living in a small village in Mexico has emerged following an impromptu meeting and a heated discussion revolving around motherhood and cloth diapers.
In Canada, we generally choose cloth diapers for ecological reasons and to avoid chemicals coming in contact with baby. In this small Mexican village, cloth diapers are used primarily to save money.
With time, our dreams became intertwined. We wanted to create a high quality cloth diaper and she wanted to start her own sewing business and create jobs locally. Through our partnership, we employ eight fairly paid full-time workers, in a workshop managed by a young mother and her family.
Mini kiwi continues to grow and we now manufacture products in Canada and Mexico. We have a dozen employees who work with us to manufacture, promote and distribute Mini kiwi products.
All of our fabrics, thread, velcros and elastics are manufactured in North America, Our packaging is manufactured in Canada and kept minimal for environmental concerns. We try to give a second life to our packaging. Discover our line of dress-up characters on each packaging.
