So what and why is vegan clothing a thing? Veganism isn’t just a diet its a lifestyle. As a vegan your clothing has to also be vegan friendly so that means no fur, no leather etc… But this vegan clothing is a little bit different.
Vegan campaign t-shirts have always been around, and I would have never worn one. Not because I didn’t agree with some of the slogans but because they’ve always been so extreme or incredibly cringey. Vegan or not, nobody really wants to wear a t-shirt with a dead animal and a cross going through it as casual wear. I don’t know about you but I want to feel cute af or even sexy in clothes, not casually repulsed.
And that is when I found @gooseandrabbit on insta. For the first time I looked at vegan clothing and thought, that’s actually really nice! I could actually wear that. So I followed them and the more I looked at their Tees and stickers the more I actually like them until I just had to slide in their DM’s. The Goose and Rabbit was founded by 26-year-old Irish Vegan and Activist Rosin Dooley 2 years ago. After speaking to Rosin we both decided we needed to join forces somehow and like a true Etsy store owner she was so sweet and sent the parcel as quickly as possible! (I actually received it weeks ago!). Now like I said this is my first time dabbling with the vegan clothing world so I had no idea what to even ask for. So helpfully I opted for “send me whatever you like hun”. And I was not disappointed.
So I have received and used pretty much every single dam day; a ‘stop eating babies’ tote bag (which is super strong), A ‘Not your mom not your milk’ t shirt which has been worn multiple times, And a sh*t load of cute stickers including; fruit and veg and ‘not your entertainment – elephant’ and ‘save the bees’ which are now all on my note-book. Now my first and only worry was am I going to look like a preachy vegan… answer to that.. probably.. do I care now? No. Because of the designs are a lot more friendly yet still to the point I feel like actually people accept them more. What makes all of this even better is that they are all fair share certified items, so the Indian workers who make these items are all being paid a fair living wage. Perfect. I actually canny wait to see the new designs she has to come! So check out her Etsy here!
