I’m Natalie. Owner and creator of Bracken & Barkley.
We are a small business located in a little market town in South Devon, UK.
I created Bracken & Barkley because I know how important it is to be able to quickly identify your pets and help reunite them if they happen to get lost. One of mine has a tendency to run from time to time, usually after birds, so I know how fraught a time that can be when they’re gone. Thankfully, all my pets wear Bracken & Barkley tags so on occasions where they’ve been found by other people, we’ve been reunited quickly and easily thanks to the clear information on each tag.
I wanted to create personalised ID tags which reflect the individual characters of your pets because if you’re like me, you’ll know it’s those individual character traits that make us love our pets so much.
Bracken has a penchant for all things dead (I know..), so we came up with “Dead Squirrel Lover”, and following the awful increase in dog thefts we’ve seen across the country in the last year, he also now wears one which says “Snipped & Chipped” to hopefully deter people from theft for breeding.
Fortunately, we have some beautiful beaches and the wonderful landscape of Dartmoor on our doorstep which we draw upon for inspiration. These often feature a large number of our designs, coupled with the individual requirements of each customer. We have lots of different fonts and individual icons we use to create each piece, which means each tag is as individual as your pet.
All our tags are lovingly created by hand from start to finish, with each letter individually stamped to your exact requirements.
Have a look at our Instagram page for photographs of tags we’ve made for our customers and to see the proud pets that get to wear them.
Thank you for your inquiry
