benji + moon



Benji + Moon is an artisanal handcrafted collection for tails that are loved to the moon and back, supporting local artisans and changing shelter animals lives at CLAW (Community Led Animal Welfare).

Their online pet shop offers cat collars, dog collars and leads, pet bowls, toys and starter kits, all handmade by South African artisans for much-loved dogs and cats with 5% of every purchase donated to CLAW (Community Led Animal Welfare).

We believe that every dog and cat deserves the best life and it's this love for all things four legged (one three legged) and a pet peeve of having to hide hideous pet bowls and beds when friends came over that called for Benji + Moon to be born.

The Benji + Moon promise:

  • products that are functionally designed talking points, rather than an eye sore

  • partnerships with local artisans whose craft deserves encouragement, support and pride of place 

  • compassion with 5% of every purchase made going to CLAW (Community Led Animal Welfare) 

Benji + Moon exist to see South African artisans work around the world and for the world to, through Benji + Moon, change the lives of dogs and cats sheltered at a little cause in Durban Deep Roodepoort called CLAW.


If you are new around here, I am an animal lover through and through. Crazy cat lady/mama, but my heart goes soft for anything with a tail.

I have followed Benji + Moon since before Epiphany was born and it has been a dream of mine to work with them. I window shopped collars from their online store before my fur babies had arrived, and when they were finally old enough Tolouse and Gnocchi got their first Benji + Moon piece.


The heart of the lovely lady that runs this business is like none other. She is committed to CLAW, and ensures that the Benji + Moon creations are made by local artisans who require encouragement and support.

A truly local brand with an evident heart for both animals and people is hard to find.

Each product from Benji + Moon is made to the highest standard and are designed to make your home (and your pets) look beautiful.

A brand that I feel so strongly about and encourage you to support.

Benji + Moon's Herbed Organic Catnip is pure homegrown goodness for your precious kitty!

Catnip is known to induce behaviours such as overt signs of affection, relaxation, and happiness. Other cats will display active behaviours, such as playfulness.

It's kitty bliss!

Ways to use Catnip:

Rub catnip into your cat’s scratching post to encourage use.
Place catnip in/on toys to encourage active play and exercise.
Sprinkle catnip in a new environment to encourage shy cats to be comfortable and help cat-to-cat introductions go smoothly.
Use catnip in your carrier or crate to reduce anxiety and create a sedative state during car trips.





Nourish, protect and repair your dog's skin, paws, nose and calluses before and after adventures with this bar of locally handcrafted goodness.


Benji + Moon's Moisture Bar is hand formulated with all-natural vegan healing ingredients:


Chamomile petals are a soothing botanical.

Sage essential oil is an antibacterial, which can treat cuts, cracks and damaged skin for faster healing.


Mango butter is ultra moisturising and combats free radicals in the skin, which can cause dryness and cracking.


To use, you just roll the bar over paw pads, noses and outer ear areas, and to dry or chapped skin.


Good enough to eat, so don't worry if it gets licked!
