Maileg's Danish designer, Dorthe Mailil pursued a career in Graphic Design where she created a distinctive clay character for a class project. This Pixie character grew in to a family of Pixie's and Dorthe moved from clay to creating the lovable characters in fabric. Dorthe and her husband created Maileg in 1999 with her joy for childhood play and imagination at all ages being the focus of the toys. Dorthe has gone on to win many awards and honours for her toys and illustrations and she continues to be the creative director for the Maileg family of bunnies, rabbits, mice and other characters. She has enabled us to make the distinctive scandiavian designed toys have a fun world with playful accessories, charming furniture and hand sewn clothing.
