The history of the brand development began in the 60s in France. An acquaintance of two young people – Monique and Paul – became the prerequisite of the brand creation. At that date, Monica was a student of a humanitarian institute and Paul – of a faculty of finance in an economic university of Paris. The meeting of two students, which soon reversed the entire world of clothes for children, took place in the 1969.

A year later, the young people married, and in the 1971 their daughter Cathie was born. And at that period of time, the choice of child clothes became the most complicated problem for spouses Salmon, or rather, the absence of necessary pieces of clothing.

Thus, in the 1972, the spouses Salmon decided to set up their brand of baby clothes under the name Caty mini. The family business was thought through to details, the Paul’s education contributed to that. Before creation of their trade mark, the spouses determined for themselves the 3 main tasks on its development.

  1. The creation of unique collections was one of the first tasks. For this purpose, they decided to create bright, colorful, pithy clothes with the use of ethnic elements, because these factors were very important to many buyers. Bright and saturated colors were seldom present in baby clothes of other brands, therefore, the Catimini company almost did not have competitors, but many parents, who got used to bright garments, wanted to see clothes of the same saturated colors in clothes of their children. Ethnic became a new trend in children’s fashion.
  2. The process of manufacture of clothes became the company’s second task. This task was also solved just ingeniously. Paul did not look for premises for a factory, did not worry about procurement of equipment, payment of labor of tailors’ cutters and seamstresses. He simply referred to the studio already equipped with necessary appliances and a work place. Such a principle of location of small studios in different places of Paris allowed to save costs and get income fast enough.
  3. The advertising and promotion of the ready product became the third task. Those years’ glossy magazines became an effective instrument of advertising. The number of admirers of fashion and the style increased constantly; and the active discussion of all fashionable trends was in pages of the magazines L’Officiel and Vogue. Paul and Monique drew up their advertising budget, where costs for photos creation and their placement not only in magazines, but in posters all over the city were included. The fashion photos of the company in baby clothes were declared the best.

Sometime later, people began to write the brand name in one word, thus, the company got a lovely name Сatimini. The logo of the trade mark was also created in the 1972.

Annually, the assortment of the brand products only expands. Now many young fops and little women of fashion can afford original clothes, about which their predecessors could only dream.
