Our Story

Mimio and Co. was established in Edmonton, Alberta in 2018. All of our products are designed and handmade with love by me – Adrienne! Inspired by our shihtzu, Obie and our late family dog, Mitzu.
Although both Obie and Mitzu inspired me to create pet accessories, my mom was my greatest inspiration. My mom, Linda, was a very talented seamstress. I had fond memories of her sewing accessories and clothing for both me and my sister. The repetitive humming noise of the machine was soothing to the ears. Mitzu would agree because you would often find her laying next to mom falling asleep to the sewing machine hard at work. With every sewing project, it always brought mom so much joy just to see her children wearing her creations.
This faint memory was almost forgotten and so one day I decided that I wanted to keep this memory alive. With Obie by my side, I dusted off the old sewing machine and started to design and sew my first bandana for my fur baby. Upon completion, I immediately put it on Obie with excitement. At this very moment, I was overwhelmed with joy, gratification, nostalgia and most importantly I could feel my mom right beside me.
The desire to keep this memory alive and to be a part of a community with like-minded pet lovers, I decided to take a leap in honing my creative skills by applying it to handcrafting pet accessories for all fur babies big or small.
