Founders Jane Richards and Amy Lindsay started Ark Colour Design in 2015 creating fun and colourful cards and gifts that are both affordable and well made. Drawing from backgrounds in fashion and fine art, the duo find many different things that inspire their products - it could be a child's drawing, a poster seen in the street or even simply scribbles on paper!

The story behind Ark Colour Design


Jane & Amy developed their own unique and quirky twist for Ark, letting their imaginations run wild to make sure every individual product stood out with humour, good fun, metallic foils and, above all, colour!

Ark's purses, bags and key fobs are made from high quality leather sourced from the UK and Ireland. The leather is processed and dyed by a small, family-run business at its on-site tannery based just outside Glasgow. It's then cut and finished to Ark's designs by hand using a heat press to add additional colours and shiny foil highlights. The girls have built up a great relationship with Paul, who must often have a good chuckle to himself at the fun designs!


During April 2021 Ark moved from it's small premises in Cambridge to a 200 year old renovated barn based in a little rural village called Waterbeach, just north of Cambridge. Having more space, Ark had the room to house its very own cutting press enabling the all-female team to cut their very own leather and paper, something they were extremely excited about!

With colour and fun being the backbone of Ark, you will often see the team on a Wednesday dressing up in their favourite shade of the week - here's Green Week to celebrate its plastic free ethos - we love the expression on Dudley the dog's face!

    Why I Love Ark Colour Design

    There is just something about the products from Ark that makes you smile - and we all need a bit of that especially in a purse or keyring which is with you all the time! I do enjoy working with true creatives and Jane and Amy from Ark can certainly be called that!
