We are Ark
Designed and engineered in Cheltenham, England for the very best start in life.
Designed for little adventures
Ark is a family run, British business that designs innovative pushchairs and accessories. The practical and creative details we’ve woven into our products are born out of our experience as parents and our design and engineering DNA.
We want to make a difference in the lives of young families through determinedly focusing on ease of use, comfort and safety, so that little adventures are easier and more enjoyable.
The idea for the the original Ark travel system came from our frustrations as parents using pushchairs that just didn’t have what was needed for family life outdoors.
We didn’t want to compromise on weight and ease of folding to get something rugged enough for a country walk and so we designed a pushchair that is one-handed fold, lightweight and compact, and so great around town, but also durable enough to last many years of exploring the British countryside!
Little known fact – Ark was originally founded by three people: Phil Staunton, Ben Thompson and Helen Knowles. Only Phil remains as an original founder but the team has expanded in other ways since!
Ark textiles have been carefully sourced and selected to be the best for your baby because we know that what goes on the skin, sinks in. Our brand promise is to only use natural, chemical-free fabrics next to baby’s delicate skin. It’s our intention, wherever possible, to use natural and sustainable materials – best for baby and best for the earth they will inherit.
