About Us

I'm Ester - designer, maker, mother, and wife. I'm a lover of tattoos, hip-hop, vegan food and car singalongs (much to the horror of my family).

A friend once said, if you were a wrestler you'd be The Organiser. I enjoy to-do lists with tick boxes.

Ester Ford Designer Founder of Dinki Human and Mother

Dinki Human was born not long after my first daughter. Having spent my pre-baby career in fashion and worked my way up to management level, I had learnt the tools of the trade. My new role as mother made me crave flexibility and a better work/life balance. I left my job to carve out a new career as mother and business owner, to design a life I loved.

Dinki Human is an organic kids clothes brand with an ethos rooted in sustainability, responsible manufacture, and gender-neutrality. I design all the pieces and prints in my home studio on the South Coast of the UK. I work closely with a small team of pattern cutters to ensure great fit and comfort. Garments are designed to last with design features like turn up cuffs to lengthen a pair of leggings. I believe we have a responsibility to take care of our planet for the future of our children. We use organic cotton, non-toxic inks and dyes, recycled and plastic-free packaging, and our Pre-Loved Initiative is designed to ensure our products avoid landfill and that their life-cycle is as long as possible. The brand’s supply chain is transparent and our ethical standards policies ensure everyone involved in making a Dinki Human product has been treated fairly. 

We create unisex and comfort-conscious organic kids clothes designed to last.
