Etsy is a great place to find handmade items while supporting independent creators around the world. What is Etsy.com? Etsy is an online marketplace where you can shop for one-of-kind items, personalized gifts, vintage goods, and an endless selection of products made by small or local designers.
I love browsing and shopping for vegan shirts on Etsy because I like to support other vegan creators, whether their local or on the other side of the world. I find Etsy is a great place to discover vegan makers from around the globe who just want to do and make some damn good things for animals and the planet!
But shopping on Etsy can be overwhelming with new products and shop owners added daily which makes trying to find what we’re looking for difficult and time-consuming.
So I’ve scoured and rummaged through Etsy to find some of my favourite Etsy vegan shirts so you, too, can help support these amazing and incredible vegan designers!
What are vegan shirts? A vegan shirt is one that’s made from plant-based bananas that you can ingest while a concerned relative grills you on your protein intake. Just Kidding. Although an edible shirt does sound cool AF. Vegan shirts is defined here as apparel that contains some sort of vegan awareness message while also considering the materials to make the shirts to ensure no animal fabrics were used.
A side note here, I’ve seen some Etsy shop owners shamelessly copying other vegan apparel designs and selling them on Etsy. I’ve tried my best to not include any copy cats in this list but if a few slipped by me, please let me know and I’ll remove them from this list.
