Ménagerie is a collection of handsome animal cushions and fun soft toys, carefully designed to steal your heart.

Ménagerie was founded in 2014 by Cecile Blake-Benade, and came about as a tongue-in-cheek nod to the design communities’ love of cute pets in their homes. Our range of Animal Friend cushions make the perfect pets for your couch. The designs are carefully crafted to tug at your heartstrings, and new designs are added all the time.

Ménagerie has expanded to include cloth dolls and soft toys which are lovingly handmade from the finest fabrics. They make great companions for little people, and adults too!

We are based in sunny Cape Town at the tip of Africa, and as we grow and expand we strive to create more jobs and become more environmentally responsible, so that you can be sure that every cushion or soft toy you buy will not only bring some cheer to the recipient, but also to all those involved in its creation.
