origins

Chris Berens & Fiona Berrisford come from a background of mapping & mosaics and went off on a tangent with Africa Moon, first produced for the year 2000.  Since then they have produced 3 children and a range of naturally south African posters, calendars, maps, note pads, gift stickers, tags and fridge magnets, all inspired by the living world around us.  Chris now spends most of his time at the VPUU offices but snatches hours to work on our new World Map.  It will be fantastic.  (Join our mailing list to get updates and news -- only 2 or 3 annually).

Our office is in our home and the packaging shed and "shop" (storage container) are in the garden.  Work, play, family and adventure all mix together with the aim of having fun while treading gently.

We are assisted by Thembela Faniso, the person who will very carefully and neatly pack your order or greet you at the gate or play soccer with the children.

We work with Sheila Petousis of Snoek Design on the animal family illustrations and design, and artists Georgie Berens and Theodore Key have illustrated some of our notepad pages. The flowers are by Fiona.

Clip Clop can create customised content, making things bigger, smaller, adding names and colours; contact us with your wishes.

Based in Cape Town, on the southern tip of Africa, gives us food for thought and deed.  Cape Town is situated in the Cape Floristic Region, the smallest of the plant kingdoms, but also the most diverse.  We love love love our fynbos.

Along with the flora come the animals that surround them, and us with a sense of scale and wonder.

We love our natural world around us but equally we're inspired by the people of our land. 

Clip Clop, loving the living world around us.
