Stylish Pet Accessories: New From Benji + Moon

WORDS Lindi Brownell Meiring

Local pet accessories brand Benji + Moon (whose designs we have featured in the past here and here) has released a new collection for cats and dogs.

From new pet baskets and elevated bowl stands to bowls specifically crafted for pets with long ears, the range is entirely handcrafted locally by established artisans and through community upliftment programmes.

The Long-Eared Dog Bowls are handmade by ceramicist Edson Mahlangu, while the comfy Crochet Baskets are handmade using T-shirt yarn from recycled T-shirt material. The Elevated Bowl Stands are a result of a collaboration with Swagger Collective, a product designed to reduce the neck and joint strain felt by older and larger dogs.

Benji + Moon has also designed a collection of leather leashes and collars, which are made using quality vegetable-tanned leather.
