Veganism is Imperative. We pride ourselves on being the main hub and HQ of all things vegan since our launch in 2016.
You can say goodbye to scanning every label to check if something is really vegan because our goal is to make veganism simple and accessible to everyone. With our new online store, we are shipping worldwide to bring you the very best vegan shoes, winter boots, coats, bags, t-shirts, cosmetics and more. We support vegan Canadian brands as much as possible and carry some of Canada’s finest vegan powerhouses including Wuxly, Matt & Nat and Pixie Mood. When we do carry international brands, we source the best quality European vegan brands, such as Vegetarian Shoes and Hoodlamb, because they adhere to ethical EU standards in their manufacturing process.
Our ethos is ‘Veganism For Everybody’. We believe in this message so much that we decided to put it on our very own t-shirts and tote bags, to raise awareness that veganism and the end of animal exploitation should not be difficult. While the liberation of animals from exploitation is serious business, we also like to use humour to communicate this message… and to let people know that we’re really ‘Vegan AF’. Our ‘Vegan World’ T-Shirt and Dad Cap, inspired by the classic nineties comedy Wayne’s World, is perfect for letting everyone know that you can be vegan and party on Wayne and Garth style. Imperative’s collection of vegan t-shirts and tank tops are always ethically made in Canada using organic cotton and rayon from bamboo. What’s more, we also ensure that our screen printing poses minimal environmental impact.
Whether you’re looking for a pair of Dr Martens Vegan 1460 Boots, the latest warm winter boots by Cougar or the coziest vegan winter coat by Wuxly to beat the blizzards outside, you’ll be able to find your vegan essentials at Imperative. Join our vegan community in the heart of Toronto’s Parkdale neighbourhood and step inside our store at 1332 Queen St W, Toronto, ON, or check out our selection of vegan ladies’ and men’s winter boots, shoes, clothing, accessories, and more online here!
