A message from our founder.

Our journey. So far.

ALIVE is the first online one-stop shop for vegan, ethical and sustainable fashion in the UK.

We give 10% of our profits back to charity, which we work with exclusively.

Before ALIVE, it has been frustrating finding vegan fashion.

Vegans had to browse through various online shops to find the right pair, in the right colour and size.

And not always has it been easy to find out what materials the brands use.

They were not able to browse an online shop, where all the styles are 100% vegan, like in a vegan restaurant.

This is where we come in.

ALIVE only stocks items that meet the high demands of our customers.

These are vegan, ethical and sustainable.

By doing so, we have been able to reduce a massive pain point of our customers.

After test trading for the last 2.5 years, we now feel that it is time for the next step.

For us, that means raising capital and crowdfunding is the way to go.

Why are we crowdfunding?

Glad you asked.

In the past, there were many vegan and ethical businesses that raised funds successfully via crowdfunding.

Because of this, it became evident that, should we ever want to raise funds, this would be the way to go.

And this time has now come.

We realised that we need more people in our team to grow our vegan fashion business.

Only as a team will we be able to make buying vegan fashion as easy and as fun as possible.

Crowdfunding will help us bring in the funds for this expansion.

We will also be able to bring in more brands and more collections.

Over the past weeks and months, we have listened to our customers and our followers.

As a third step, we will be able to improve our webshop further and to make it even more user-friendly.

Last but not least, it will also enable the vegan audience to invest in businesses that they believe in.

To sum it up, here are three main reasons why we are raising funds:

I) Hire a team
Bring in the most driven and fashion-savvy talent.

II) Increase Inventory
Increase stock to improve the customer experience.

III) Launch ALIVE's collection
Cater to our customer's pain points (even better!). And solve them with the right products from ALIVE's collection.

Testimonials

It's one thing to say we're the best in what we do.

It's another thing if you have customers who already rated you with five stars.

Because of that, we thought we'd let a few of them have their say.

You can find more reviews on Trustpilot and our review page.

I love this little online shopping haven!
Totally vegan products mean I can look at everything without having to think about what they are made from!

The communication from ALIVE was brilliant. They are extremely friendly and helpful!

All in All ... a 5-star review all round!

I love these boots!
I've been wearing them on a construction site for light-duty work, and they are holding up and wearing great.

I would definitely recommend this product and Alive to anyone interested.

Philip S.

The customer service at ALIVE has been second to none!

I was really impressed with their ongoing communication and helpfulness in getting my new vegan shoes to me.

A lovely product from a lovely company. Thanks again!"

Eligible customers over the age of 18, globally (excludes residents of the USA, Canada or Japan)

When will the campaign go live?
+

We aim to be going Live in December 2019.

We will, of course, announce the exact date via email and social media so don't miss out on this.

Will ALIVE customers have exclusive access to the investment?
+

If you got this far on this page, we'd like to thank you.

And if you already bought from us, we'd like to quote AC/DC:

For those about to rock, we salute you.

If you're an existing customer (or a customer to be!), you certainly are a rockstar to us.

So, as our way of saluting you, we will give you, our customer, a 72-hour window to invest before everyone else!

Everyone who has pre-registered will receive a 48-hour window to get a chance to invest early as well.

So don't forget to sign up.

What happens after I invest?
+

It's a question we've already received a lot. And we're delighted you asked as well.

As soon as the campaign is over, every investor will receive an email.

In it, you will find both the Articles of Association. You will also find information about the cooling-off period.

After a maximum of seven days, the payment collections process starts.

And after that, Crowdcube will share electronic share certificates with you.

You can find more information about this on our partner page here.

Why did you choose Crowdcube?
+

There are two reasons for that.

The first reason is numbers related.

Crowdcube values the power of people and know that we're stronger together.

And their numbers prove the point: They have helped fuel the growth of three out of 16 of the UK's active unicorns.

In the last 12 months alone, they helped raises of 196 companies on their platform, which totalled £165.5m.

The second reason, however, is related to our values.

In the last 12 to 18 months, we have seen more and more vegan businesses on Crowdcube's platform.

To name a few, there was Optiat, which does fantastic skincare and which we also stock at ALIVE.

Then, there was Vurger Co, which we at ALIVE have been following since their early days on Broadway Market.

They now have their own restaurant and wholesale product range.

And it's likely the best (vegan) burger you can find in London.

To also name a vegan fashion example, there was, of course, Pozu's campaign.

We always admired their exceptional designs.

As you can imagine, this was what convinced us.

What to do now?

You can invest from as little as £10. Or more. Every little helps.

Why is ALIVE crowdfunding?
+

Our primary focus will be hiring a team.

These changes will allow us to give our customers the best shopping experience.

How do I make a return on my investment?
+

However, as with all investments, the value of your investment may go down as well as up. And it could be lost altogether.

Our journey so far

Selling only products that promote animal welfare, human rights and the environment, ALIVE’s 100% vegan shop is for the fashion-conscious and ethical consumer who wants to make the world a better place.

And we practice what we preach, giving 10% of our profits to animal welfare and green charities.

More and more people are striving to live an ethical lifestyle (3.5m in the UK alone) but the fashion industry is yet to catch-up.

Before ALIVE, it was a frustrating process to find ethical products, which required browsing through various online stores.

Smaller ethical brands are hard to find, and larger brands rarely mark their ethical ranges clearly.

ALIVE brings together multiple brands that share similar ethics, stocking a stock a range of styles and brands, and becoming the central hub for ethical shoppers.

Having completed 2.5 years of test trading, we’re ready to hire a team of the most driven and fashion-savvy talent.

We also want to increase our inventory and even launch our own ALIVE fashion collection.

To join us as we shake up the world of ethical fashion (worth and est. £481m in the UK alone), sign-up below to receive an early access link to our Crowdcube page 48hrs before the general public:
