Be daring. Be different. Be you.


At Nanducket, we're inspired by Ack's story.  So we're building a brand where we celebrate our differences, and everyone is always welcome. 

About the Duck

From a certain perspective, the shape of the island of Nantucket, a beautiful haven off the coast of Cape Cod, looks a lot like a duck.  And so a map of the island became the inspiration for the Nanducket brand.  And of course, it only made sense that we would name the hero of our book — a young duckling — after Nantucket’s famous airport, ACK.


At Nanducket, we believe in a quiet revolution of acceptance, bravery, and empowerment for our children and ourselves. When you wear the duck, you're wearing a symbol of love and acceptance for all.

Come waddle with us!
