bernie & zuzu is owned by Bernie (a human) and her sidekick Zuzu (a cat). We created bernie & zuzu because the world needs more color, more joy, more vibrancy, more connection and more love.

At bernie & zuzu, we design unique, one-of-a-kind products with bold, bright color and exuberant patterns that give our customers permission to play and dream. We believe slow making is better, and we source environmentally sustainable and fair-trade products whenever possible. We are a proudly queer and feminist owned business based in Madison, Wisconsin.

You can find our goods at Communication Madison, the Dane County Farmer’s Market from April-October, and at local art markets.
