Little Hen was founded by Hendrikje van Dijk, a graphic-and surface pattern designer at Drikje Design.
She lives in the idyllic Cadier en Keer (Southern Limburg/ the Netherlands) with
her partner, two daughters, two cats and nine chickens.

The name Drikje Design was created by splitting Hendrikje's first name up in 'Hen' and (what remains) ‘Drikje’.
The word Design speaks for itself. The name “Little Hen” was a logical next step for the name of the
pattern designs for childern and for the love chickens.
