Vegan Handmade

Today I wanted to introduce you all to the down-home side of veganism with handmade goodies!

Vegan Recycled Vinyl Cuff from jakrandomart.

Both Crafty Vegan and I have shops on Etsy, an online marketplace for all things handmade.  Within Etsy there are a variety of Teams (groups of organized Etsy members) "who network, share skills, and promote their shops and Etsy together," forming around a shared location, crafting medium, or another interest.
So, it will come as no surprise to you that I'm a part of Etsy for Animals (group of over 500 artists & suppliers combining their efforts to provide charitable relief to animals) and Vegan Etsy (made up of vegans that maintain completely vegan shops).

I highly encourage you to explore Etsy if you never have--it's pretty fun, time flies as you browse and browse and browse beautiful stuff--and I especially invite you to look into Etsy for Animals and Vegan Etsy for cruelty-free, good-intentioned art and supplies.

Below is a taste of what these talented people have to offer. I chose a variety of media so that you can see the wide range of "vegan crafts" on Etsy. Enjoy!

How great are all those items? Beautiful, practical, cruelty-free and your money goes to charities or supporting small business rather than irresponsible and exploitative conglomerates...That's not just vegan goodness, that's all around awesome!

Also, today marks my etsy shop's 1 year anniversary! In honor of this occasion, I'm offering free shipping on ALL items and a special to all our readers: 15% off your order when you type in 'Veg Hermana' in the box upon checkout today only... so don't miss it!





Enjoy your weekend! Go outside, find natural wildlife in the most urban of spaces, pick up some trash, go to the farmer's market, cook something vegan and delicious for someone you love, and take time for yourself.

be well!
