The idea of ardie. came about the desire to create the perfect beach towel; a daily companion that mirrors the beauty of the ocean and encapsulates the frequency of life by the beach.
Modern minimalism meets century old artisan practices.
Aiming to counter fast fashion, ardie. gives you staple beach essentials, with timeless design and sustainable creation. Fusing two worlds together, each item combines minimalist designs with the finest craftsmanship. Whether that being our cotton towels or the individually designed beach bags.
Meet the founder.
Founded by Louisa von Ingelheim in beautiful Burleigh Heads, ardie. embodies ideas and inspiration gathered from her many adventures in Australia over the past 12 years. Despite her upbringing in Germany, each year the family trip to the beach sparked a love of the blue that would eventually fuel her desire to move to Australia.
A true believer in unadorned, simplistic and timeless style, Louisa wanted to create beautiful things for the beach and home that will stand the test of time. Her love for the ocean also drove the need to ensure ardie. is as sustainable and environmentally friendly as possible — an ongoing mission of continuous improvement. From the hand spun cotton and eco friendly dyes to compostable and/or recycled packaging.
