Whilst on my hunt for more unicorns made in South Africa, I knew I had found an absolute gem when I came across Fox & Moon! They have the most gorgeous decor items, & these are all locally produced. Their company is based in Cape Town, but they deliver throughout South Africa.
Your names: Amanda and Cindy
Business name: Fox and Moon
When did you start: 2010
How did this business start: Amanda started the company shortly after the birth of her firstborn, having studied fashion design and having a passion for interior design, Fox and Moon was started. Cindy shortly joined forces bringing her Business Analyst qualifications on board making Fox and Moon a success it is.
How did you come up with your name: We originally were called “The Tickled Pink Fox” giving tribute to Amanda’s two daughters and her love for pink. We decided in 2013 for a name change to be more unisex and Fox and Moon came to life. Keeping the Fox from the original name and then adding moon to still give a nod to Amanda’s daughters who always said: I love you to the moon and back!
What products do you make: We make everything from cot duvets to chairs and general kids decor items
Why do you love what you do: Design is in our blood. Both Cindy and Amanda have a design background and designing for children has been by far the most rewarding job in the world… and fun too!
What are your most popular items: Our Unicorn designs and our cactus range are by far the top sellers.
Social media handles: Instagram & Facebook
How can people order from you: From our online store
Tell me a bit more about the show you are going to: We are going to Kamers which is a show that is done twice a year all over the country. The reason why we choose this show above any other show is that only local designers (made in SA) are allowed to exhibit, allowing us to showcase our gorgeous products at a fair price without having to compete with the diluted Chinese products many other stalls sell.
Can people order customized items: At this point in time we don’t allow customize items.
Quote you live by: Live with passion and be fearless!
Don’t you just love this company & what these ladies stand for? I know when I chatted to them a bit more I fell even more in love with them, & Fox & Moon. I will definitely be purchasing from them going forward – & such great gift ideas for baby showers & birthday parties!
My unicorn goodies should be arriving soon so keep an eye on my social media to see these beauties – poor husband has no idea that the unicorns have taken over our lives…
