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.
WHY WE LOVE THEM
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.

DOG COLLAR TAG
With Benji + Moon’s custom made stainless steel slide-on tags you’ll never lose a dog tag or hear them jangling against their food and water bowl again.
These tags are sleek, durable, rustproof and made especially for the B+M collars.
I love the way they sit lightly against your fur babies neck and almost form part of the collar itself.
All you have to do is send B+M your dogs name and your phone number/s and they'll have it laser engraved onto the tag for you - included in the cost!
How great does it look with this light leather collar from Benji + Moon?

SLOW FEED CERAMIC DOG BOWL
FOR THE HUNGRY BABIES
Benji + Moon's Slow Feed Ceramic Dog Bowl helps dogs who tend to inhale their food to sllllooowwww down which means better-chewing, improved digestion, less bloat, less gas, reduced regurgitation, choking and better gut health.
Finding a slow feeder is not an easy task in the first place, and finding one that actually looks good in your home while doing its job properly is another challenge altogether.
B+M have ticked all those boxes with their ceramic option. It's beautiful and practical, designed with your doggy's health in mind.
Also, toxin-free, easy to clean, a healthier alternative to plastic bowls and they make a beautiful handcrafted addition to any home.

SPILLED MILK CERAMIC PET BOWL
In support of local artisans and their craft, B+M asked Kilnhouse Design Studio to extend their beautiful Spilled Milk range to include pet bowls for you and your much-loved tail.
This beautiful range comes in terracotta with a "spilt milk" coating that flows over its edges. A sweet little creation in celebration of our local artists and their talent.
