From a distance, this majestic design might appear to be formal coats of arms of heraldic crests. On closer inspection, the family represented is Kingdom: Animalia. Inspired by totemic Ardmore sculptures of undulating animals, Safari Totem features exquisitely decorated duos around a central palm.
Graceful curves arch and entwine, layering and repeating in an intricate dance. Beautifully hand-rendered leopards, giraffes and elephants echo one another's forms in a natural harmony dressed for a festival adorned in jubilant patterns. This climbing composition is presented in sophisticated palettes of ginger, ruby and taupe with dawn-bright or dusky soot grounds.

Ardmore is a world-leading luxury African brand through uncompromising dedication to skill, creativity and pride in everything they do. Each Ardmore creation begins with a moment of inspiration – it could be an early morning walk along a misty river, an afternoon game drive in the Sabie wilderness, or watching the antics of a bird in the Ardmore Studio garden. The seeds of an idea are sown – as they so often are in Africa – by a serendipitous meeting between Nature, an enquiring mind and an artist’s eye.
Traditional African wisdom asserts that it takes a village to raise a child; at Ardmore, we know that it takes a community to hold Ardmore together, "we are because of others" is truly a central tenet of Ardmore.
Similarly, each Ardmore Design fabric pattern tells a story and is often the work of many hands, from initial pencil sketches which are then hand painted in the finest detail before being turned into graphic designs and then printed onto the final designs.
