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.
THIS MONTHS CURATIONS
SLIDE-ON CAT COLLAR TAG
These custom made stainless steel slide-on tags are super smart because they eliminate the risk of falling free, like is the case with a dangling one. A dangling tag can easily get caught and broken off when your kitty is out adventuring.
These tags however, are sleek, durable, rust proof and made specifically to fit B+M collars. (Slides onto a 1.4cm wide collar)
No more disappearing tags and no more jangling against the food and water bowls!
With Benji + Moon’s custom made stainless steel slide-on tags you send B+M your cat's name and your phone number/s and they will have it laser engraved onto the tag for you (included in the cost).
SLOW FEED DOG BOWL
Made especially for those pups who eat like it's their last meal on earth! Benji + Moon's Slow Feed Ceramic Dog Bowl helps dogs who eat their food way too quickly to slow down and eat at a better, and more healthier, pace.
This means better chewing, improved digestion, less bloat, less gas, reduced regurgitation, choking and better gut health.
Also, the ceramic bowls are toxin free, easy to clean and a healthier alternative to plastic bowls. I must add that they make a beautiful handcrafted addition to any home.
The bowl is approximately 21cm in diameter and 6cm deep.
