About us

Hi! Thank you for taking a minute to find out a bit more about us. 

Delinky Kids is an Auckland-based small business which is run by myself, Alicia, and my husband Ettiene. We are originally from South Africa and have been living in NZ for 10 years. We have 2 children under five who keep us busy! Ettiene and I have always had an active outdoor lifestyle and with the addition of the two kids, we have found that we need to get out at least once a weekend to go burn off some energy before cabin fever sets in! It was always such a hassle keeping the kids dry at the parks, playgrounds and beaches. When the opportunity came along to take over Delinky Kids in 2016, we jumped at it. I have been sewing for many years - mostly comfy kids clothing - and loved the idea of sewing for other kids to keep them dry and warm in the wet weather. I have a list of ideas that I want to incorporate into the brand one day - one step at a time!

Our products are not mass-produced overseas - they are hand-made right here in New Zealand. We take pride in our work and do our best to ensure you receive an exceptional product at all times and we've got a track record to prove it! Our waterproof kids gear definitely does the job parents are looking for - keeping your kids dry and comfortable. Our items are totally splash-, puddle-, and mud-proof and a huge bonus is that our waterproof clothing scrunches down so small it hardly takes up any space. You'll be surprised how quickly our waterproof clothing dries on the line ready to be used again and again, and then get passed down from sibling to sibling for years to come! 

Delinky Kids waterproof clothing is designed for all seasons and is breathable, is not made from a noisy, plastic-like fabric and is super high quality - years of research has gone into designing the perfect waterproof gear for the typical kiwi kid. 

We do bulk orders too at discounted rates, and are more than happy to discuss customising your Delinky items.
