About Us

The Bespoke Artichoke was born out of the need for a cruelty free space for vegans in South Africa, where there was no need to label check and compassionate people could shop with confidence! We aim to make ethical shopping a convenient experience and have sourced vegan friendly items from all over South Africa, and a little further, to fill your basket. Our suppliers have also been vetted to ensure that no beeswax is used to polish items.

Our featured hair, face, body and furkid products are endorsed either by Beauty Without Cruelty, (BWC), or Cruelty Free International. This is to ensure that our customers have peace of mind when shopping with us. We believe that it is essential for companies to prove their cruelty free claims using the above independent organisations.

We are very mindful of our effect on the environment and for this reason have opted not to stock any 100% PU leather alternative bags or wallets. While some bubble wrap will be encasing the more delicate items for delivery, we will ensure that this has been pre used. If you have any suggestions as to how we can improve on our carbon footprint here, please do not hesitate to drop us a mail. We also encourage the customer to do their part by reusing or recycling packaging!  :)

The products available at The Bespoke Artichoke have been carefully selected both for their ethical value as well as quality. The vegan movement is growing in South Africa, and we would like The Bespoke Artichoke to be a place where the customer's morals and ethics are appreciated and valued. As vegans we come from all walks of life, but have one very important thing in common, we want a better world for the non human animals that we share this earth with. We endeavour to make living ethically that much easier.

Enjoy your shopping experience with us!
