Gentle on Pets. Gentle on the Earth.
Our range of timeless pet accessories are handcrafted with your dogs health and the environment in mind.
Healthy Pets – Domestic pets are increasingly exposed to our chemical heavy lifestyles, suffering illnesses as a result. We use only natural Hemp, Linen and Certified Organic Cotton for our products, making them non toxic and hypoallergenic. This is extremely important for the health of our pets, especially when these products are in direct contact with their skin.
Healthy Earth – All products are designed and handcrafted in our NSW home workshop where the manufacturing process ensures little to no wastage and minimal environmental impact. We are committed to providing pet owners with plastic free, sustainable products that can be repaired, composted or recycled once they’re outgrown or worn out.
HEMP RANGE – Our range of collars, leads and harnesses are made using ethically sourced natural Hemp that is naturally hypoallergenic, anti microbial and anti fungal. Great for the health and wellbeing of any pooch but a must have for the sensitive fur babies.
GIVING BACK – We are committed to giving back where possible, for the Earth, the Animals & the People. We donate 5% from every order to animal rescue and environmental organisations fighting the good fight.
RECYCLING PROGRAM – All good things eventually come to an end, or puppies grow. This doesn’t mean your once loved pet accessories need to end up in landfill. Our ‘Worn Out Wear’s’ recycling program is designed to help customers dispose of their end of use products without leaving a trace. We even compost the textiles scraps ourselves!
I spent many years travelling this great countryside, feeding a desire to be amongst nature and untouched lands. It was on the big lap of Australia that I found a deep rooted appreciation and connection to the land, its people and the animals.
After losing my best mate Obie (a 14 year old Fox Terrier x Jack Russel) in 2016 to liver disease, the question I kept asking was how could a dog that was healthy and well looked after end up with this condition? The persistent search for answers quickly lead me down a rabbit hole of information on toxins in our environment & in our homes. Everything from
body products, cleaning products, food, clothing, furniture, paint etc. These hidden nasties play havoc on our (and our pets) bodies, putting strain on our organs as they try to filter out the junk. This is where our all natural, non toxic & sustainable journey began.
I went on to complete Cert II in Animal Studies through the RSPCA then continued to further my knowledge with Animal Behaviour & Psychology along with Natural Animal Health Care. It was around this time that Marlow (the Kelpie seen all over our socials) came into our life.
Marlow was only 9 months old, and through no fault of his own had been living in a shelter for 5 of those months. This once timid and scared boy had been through 4 lots of Kennel Cough and countless other stress related immune illnesses in his first few months so we decided to take our new found knowledge and give this little guy the best possible chance at life.
We incorporate our non toxic living practices to all aspects of Marlow’s life but when looking for truely non toxic and sustainable pet wear, I struggled to find anything durable enough for this strong boy. Knowing about the superior strength and health benefits of hemp fibre, I decided to make his gear myself… and that’s where Bohemi Handcrafted pet wear was born!
Bohemi is a legacy to Obie and a promise to Marlow. We are extremely proud of our little business and look forward to working on new ways to provide truely sustainable options that keep our pets healthy while taking care of the earth at the same time.
