Little Mary, a French brand of children's shoes created in 1974, has been taken over by a new holding company, KidShoes, or KSH, that wants to develop it further and to launch new brands and new licenses. The new group has been set up by Hervé Jailliard, who has been running other companies in the clothing sector, and René Rousseau, who is helping him to run KSH, with the support of another partner. KSH is starting off with a turnover of about €5 million.
