Originally known as Diana Dolls Wear, Kushies was founded in 1953 by Canadian Mary Malinowski. Conceived as a small-scale company that would make dolls’ clothing and accessories. Today, the company is owned by Mary’s daughter Susan and her husband Sam Perez and is still located in its birthplace of Stoney Creek, Ontario, where the head office, product conception, design and production takes place. Additionally, over half of all Kushies products are still proudly manufactured in Canada, allowing the company to closely supervise quality, ethics and sustainability of its offerings. Now much more than a dolls’ clothing company, Kushies produces nursing pads, night lights and more.
