About Inkydink

Inkydink

Handmade baby and children's wear from exclusive fabrics with prints, designed by me.

Hello, welcome and thank you for visiting my shop!

So what is there to tell about me? Well, first and foremost, I love making clothes. And now that I have a baby of my own, I realise just what fun it is to dress my little boy in the kind of joyful and vibrant clothes that only very little children can truly get away with, without being laughed out of the room.

I started my career as a costume maker in the arts, making for high-profile stage and screen productions over a span of 15 years or so. I then made the bold decision - pre-Covid of course! - that what the heck, why not go freelance and make the kind of things that I want to make for all the parents, family and friends who want something just that little bit more special for a beloved child.

I take great pride and care in my technical work: call me a nerd, but I am a passionate advocate for the precision and crispness of a well-tailored and skilfully sewn piece of clothing! By buying one of my garments, I hope that you will come to love these qualities just a little bit too! I create and draft all my sewing patterns myself, so that I can ensure that my garments fit and hang as well as they possibly can.

All of my fabrics use my own designs: each design originates from something inspirational in my life, whether that be experiences in my own childhood, my son's peccadilloes or my husband's hobbies. I relish the process of developing a pencil-sketched idea into a fully formed design on my iPad and then working with the textile company to bring the idea to a beautifully printed and finished fabric.

When I set out on my new voyage into the dangerous reefs of freelance clothes making, I was keen to mould my business according to my own beliefs and values. Therefore it was important to me to consider the ethical dimension of my clothing range. I care deeply about the future of our planet and the world in which our children will grow and develop. Hence, my fabrics are printed using non-chemical dyes which do not pollute the environment. In addition, the textile company that prints the fabrics only prints the amount I ask for in small-scale runs to reduce wastage as much as possible.

I endeavour use our planet's resources as sustainably as possible, using recyclable and biodegradable packaging and natural fabrics and threads.

I pre-wash all my fabrics before use to minimise shrinkage.

My careful design process, hand-made manufacturing skills and ethical considerations ensure that the garment you receive is no common-or-garden, mass-produced piece of clothing, but a special and unique item with a story to tell, and with love, craft and care stitched into it's very seams.

I am truly excited to be making these children's clothes and sharing my joy of making them with you. Most of all, I hope to put just a little smile on the faces of my customers, as they see their tiny loved one promenading around in one of my creations before rapidly covering them in the goo, slime and grime of everyday childhood.

Thank you again for reading, and I hope you enjoy my clothes!
