Rest In Pets
A new, personal business adventure.
A concept had been rattling around my head for some time and eventually made its way into the ideas book, sketched, then straight onto CAD. Once I had cut my first prototype I stood back and revelled in the pure, natural beauty of it, and like an over excited child at Christmas I started showing it off to fellow designers & friends. All who saw this instantly knew that this wasn’t just an idea anymore, this had to happen. So Rest In Pets was created…
The death of a beloved pet can be hugely painful, and it’s difficult to plan for such a sad event. But think back to your early childhood memories of pets passing away. Goldfish flushed unceremoniously down the toilet. Guinea pigs and bunnies wrapped in old tea towels, and cats squashed into shoeboxes. Surely our furry family members are worth a bit of forethought?
Rest In Pets has designed and tested a set of products that finally gives pet lovers an option. Our smaller designs use a classic coffin shape, a well known visual metaphor that everyone can relate to. It adds a sense of solemn dignity.
For the large casket, we designed a new hexagonal shape. At the end of their lives, cats are best farewelled curled up... maybe remembering one of their many afternoon naps. The hexagonal shape suits this best.
If you wish to have your pet cremated the urn is an ideal way to hold the ashes. If you wish to scatter these at some stage there is an easy pull tab to do this. Alternatively, if you seek bury your pet after cremation you could lay them to rest in one of our caskets.
