Ducky Zebra is an Oxford-based startup with a mission to inspire kindness and confidence in children, no matter what their gender, through colourful, sustainable clothing (aged 0 – 6 years). Their unisex designs are free from gender stereotypes. It’s clothing is fun and colourful, with child-approved designs, showing characters working together, playing together and being kind towards one another. All items include an embroidered splash motif, often hidden inside a pocket, as a physical reminder to be kind and confident. Their clothes are made from soft, GOTS certified Organic Cotton, and for every garment sold, £1 is donated to charity. For more information, visit duckyzebra.com.
I was so frustrated with the lack of options available for my kids. Girls’ clothes are often pink, cute and impractical while boys’ clothing is blue, aggressive and adventure-seeking. Why can’t girls be confident and boys be kind? I wanted my kids to wear items that inspire both these positive characteristics, while also being kind to the planet. When I couldn’t find any high street brands doing it, I decided to do it myself and launched Ducky Zebra.
