Children's Wear Digest's roots go back to the Richmond Dry Good Company, which Julius W. Klaus helped to found in 1911, originally providing linen and clothing to retailers throughout the South. In 1956, Klaus's son purchased the company, and it has remained a family business ever since. Always ready to change with the times, the company operated as a boutique for children's clothing in the late 1970s and 1980s, then expanded into mail-order service in 1987 with its first Children's Wear Digest catalog. These days, they mail more than 17 million catalogs each year, supplemented by a website, CWDkids.com, since 1997. Offering fun and first-rate children's wear from well-known brands such as Lacoste, Lilly Pulitzer and Flapdoodles, Children's Wear Digest continues its trusted reputation as a source of quality, service and comfort in stylish children's clothing that will last for generations.
