This striking replica shirt takes its inspiration from the amazing conservation work done by the David Sheldrick Wildlife Trust, who are currently hand-raising Ambo, the newest member of the #SamuraiFamily. Honouring the new partnership formed by Samurai International RFC, the world’s most prominent invitational rugby side and the pioneering DSWT. The shirt is representative of a mural at the DSWT’s elephant nursery in Nairobi National Park, created by French artist Philippe Baudelocque. The depiction of the elephant has been combined with the rising sun pattern, which is synonymous with Samurai International. This represents the new hope given to animals who thrive at the David Sheldrick Wildlife Trust, whilst reflecting the values held by the team. The designers at Samurai Sportswear have used batik style patterns on the shoulders of the shirt along with a mix of colours, including earthy tones of green and orange, often found in traditional African artwork. By combining this with a classic elephant grey, it is ensured that the inspiration for the shirt is never forgotten.
The David Sheldrick Wildlife Trust works to protect and preserve wildlife and habitats in Kenya, including the rescue and rehabilitation of orphaned elephants, enabling them to be re-integrated back into the wild herds of Tsavo; the project has received worldwide critical acclaim. It is hoped that more awareness will be raised through this partnership, where Samurai Sportswear, Samurai International RFC and The David Sheldrick Wildlife Trust can continue to protect the herd.
