A better way to make clothes

The fashion industry has a problem

It accounts for 10% of global carbon emissions and nearly 20% of all wastewater. In the UK an estimated 350,000 tonnes of clothing ends up in landfill every year. This is not sustainable. At Ducky Zebra we want to do things differently. We are committed to a slower, kinder and more sustainable type of fashion.

Sustainable production

Meet our manufacturing partner

We're proud to be working with our manufacturing partner, Shine Organic Clothing Company, based in south India. Not only are they highly skilled and GOTS certified, but they're also passionate about creating clothes sustainably. Over half of their power comes from solar energy. They harvest rainwater, which helps to save the groundwater level, and they recycle all waste water.

All of our clothes are made from

GOTS Organic Cotton fabric 

Our clothes are made from GOTS organic cotton to reduce their environmental impact and ensure fair and safe working conditions. No harmful chemicals are used in the growing of organic cotton, and it emits up to 46% less greenhouse gases than non-organic. 

GOTS stands for Global Organic Textile Standards and it is regarded as the world’s leading certification for textiles made from organic fibres. The GOTS certification checks the product is fully organic from start (at the farm) to finish.

We want you to buy less

Slow fashion, made to last and pass

We use high quality fabric, have generous sizing and include features like turn-up cuffs to increase longevity. Our unisex clothes are designed to last and pass on to siblings and friends, regardless of the season or gender.

Our factory actively promotes low minimum order quantities, with a 'think big, start small' philosophy. Their approach means we can create small volumes of high quality garments, reducing any potential waste, and allowing us to test and learn as we go.

What should you do with your old clothes?

Give your Ducky Zebra clothes another life

We know children grow quickly. If you don't have anyone to pass your old Ducky Zebra clothes on to, send them back to us! We have two fantastic initiatives, designed to reduce the number of clothes that end up in landfill. 

These include our Pre-Loved Programme in partnership with the Oxford Baby Bank and our Reloop Programme in partnership with thelittleloop.
