Dinki Human was established in 2016 by mumma-maker-designer Ester, the range is designed on the UK’s beautiful South Coast and manufactured in the UK.

Our collection is not for girls or for boys, it’s for humans who happen to be dinki (aged 0-5 years). The range is completely inclusive and gender-neutral.

Unisex style to make you smile.

Each product is designed with safety and responsibility in mind and joy at it’s heart. We endeavour to be as sustainable and fair as possible and mindful of the impact our product’s manufacture has on the Earth.

We are committed to operating in the most environmentally friendly way possible. We don’t use any animal products, we are plastic-free (even our swing tags are made from recycled cotton t-shirts), and we use GOTS certified organic cotton and non-toxic OEKO-TEX standard inks.

Dinki Human collections are continuous - we have new prints and product launches seasonally but they won’t push out the continuous product line - that would be wasteful and we don’t like wasteful.

We actively encourage our Dinki Tribe to get the most from their products and love to see things passed on to younger siblings and cousins when they’ve been outgrown.

We believe in authenticity and transparency so if you have any questions please email hello@dinkihuman.com.
