The Origin behind our inspiration
Orgari by Heidi Steck umbrellas eleven collections, each unique in its continuation of the African heritage as an Orgari piece.
Africa is home to some pretty iconic trees: the mighty and mythical baobab, also known as “the tree of life”, the vibrant Jacaranda tree so iconic to Pretoria. The Acacia Tree also known as “the umbrella thorn”, but there is nothing quite as spectacular as the “Erythrina”, the coral tree.
Orgari designs are also influenced by various birds: The South African national flower, The King Protea with its elegant Cape Sugar Bird, the irresistible African Hoopoe and the striking King Fisher. Iconic Fauna and Flora that has a strong impact on our designs are the indigenous Cape Disa and the charming Flame Lily in all its vibrant color. Wildlife also contribute in a variety of designs like the spirited Vervet Monkey and the majestic Leopard.
Our values of craftsmanship, quality & design are embedded in each of our pieces. Hand sculpted and hand painted by locally trained artists – an ongoing skills development initiative and the embodiment of the cultural significance of our pieces.
Orgari by Heidi Steck, flagship boutique and production facility are located in Franschhoek, the “French Corner”, which is one of the oldest towns in the country. Originally settled in the late 17 century, t Franschhoek Valley was first name Olifantshoek, translated to “Elephants Corner”. Long gone from the area, elephants once roamed wild through the vast mountain ranges that surround the rich valley. Providing excellent products and exceptional service, our location embodies the true Orgari spirit, creating a shopping experience that is as unique and prestigious as the brand itself, bringing the story full circle.
