Our Canadian Story
Sweet Kyla started off as cottage industry in 1978 and for 10 years, the product line was mainly decorative wallhangings made out of wool felt. They were cute, colorful, and ranged in size from 8” high to 60” high. For many years, all the sewing was done in the basement of many fine seamstresses in the Kitchener Ontario area. In 1988 two sisters bought the business and brought their own ideas to the company including the decision to build on the company’s reputation for quality craftsmanship. Manufacturing was brought in-house to make use of more modern production equipment and the focus was directed toward designer baby bedding that is safe and room décor that is both functional as well as decorative.
While other bedding companies have shifted their product overseas, Sweet Kyla stands firm in the belief that you can’t beat the quality of Canadian- made goods. When you combine a very talented production team with a first rate customer service department you have a winning combination that’s rare. Every single person in the company is committed to a high level of quality including the owners who are involved with production and work alongside the employees.
When you look at the Sweet Kyla logo, you will notice there is an angel and a heart as part of the design. These 2 elements are in memory of a baby girl called Kyla who passed away 30 years ago. She was the daughter of the founder of Sweet Kyla and it is in her name that the company was established.
Isn’t it ironic, that new moms buying Sweet Kyla products today, were first introduced to Sweet Kyla when they were a baby? The product may be different than it was all those years ago but the main ingredients of quality workmanship and commitment to excellence is still there…it makes our story very special …… and very Canadian.
