Nominated for Eluxe Vegan Brand of the Year 2021, FRIDA ROME is a conscious luxury brand, creating bold statement pieces that perfectly embody a modern woman's sophisticated yet contradictory nature.
Inspired by iconic locations such as the former residence of Yves Saint Laurent, the Jardins Majorelle in Marrakech, FRIDA ROME's accessories are crafted to be lifelong companions.
About the Founders
Unapologetically liberal in their approach, Rebecca Joy and Natalie Deanna share the outlook that fun always comes first – this has been key in their business approach.
With a background in events, marketing and advertising, Rebecca and Natalie are friends turned business partners who set out to follow their passion for luxury style, and given both women are vegan, it was inevitable that they would invest in creating a sustainable vegan luxury label.
Having lived on opposite sides of the world for over ten years and maintained a strong bond, it was during one of their many spontaneous trips – this time to Morocco, in 2018 – that the idea of starting FRIDA ROME was born, leading to the launch of their first accessory, the crossbody WEEK/END bag. This bag can be deconstructed to fit neatly inside carry-on luggage. Discreetly displayed on the softest eco-suede lining of the WEEK/END is an erotic story chapter; a little reminder of the rebel side of the woman who wears it. It’s the perfect conversation starter...or something to keep for yourself.
“We started this brand because we fully embrace our personal ethos towards the good life and part of that is being vegan. We’re giving a voice to those that don’t have one, as well as proving to the fashion industry that luxury can be vegan. FRIDA ROME pushes the boundaries towards making veganism sexy when it comes to style.”
Avoiding a heavy reliance on PU and completely renouncing PVC, FRIDA ROME works with cactus leather from Mexico – what makes it amazing is that the harvest process does not damage the plant. The label's micro-suede is made in Italy using only water-based dyes and minimising energy waste. Finally, the brand uses organic cotton from Germany, only grown in areas with sufficient rainfall for cotton farming. No pesticides are used in its production, and it is harvested with natural, ecological methods.
FRIDA ROME makes its handbags locally in the UK, in order to establish a good working relationship with the people who actually make them - artisan craftsmen and women who have been working in their trade for decades. Natalie and Rebecca know them personally and witness their working conditions regularly. The brand uses manufactures and suppliers who provide transparent information on the welfare of their staff and their business practices, and also work with those with Fair for Life certification.
The brand's bags are made in a traditional bag-making workshop a fifteen-minute drive from their office in Manchester. Working to maintain a highly skilled manufacturing capability on UK soil, this workshop is ethical and transparent in their operations. FRIDA ROME chooses to work with this manufacturer for their ethics towards fair work and maintaining good craftsmanship, but also to reduce their own freight emissions by choosing not to export manufacturing overseas.
The packaging company FRIDA ROME works with plants trees to offset the use of organic wood pulp material used to make the mailing boxes that the brand's sophisticated accessories are shipped in. Made from 90% recycled materials, the packaging is also 100% recyclable and compostable, and only uses water-based inks and natural glues
As the founders are vegan themselves, the brand is PETA-Approved Vegan.

As a marketplace, we sell over 100 beautiful vegan and sustainable brands – but we don’t hold stock, so when you order a product from us, the item gets shipped from the brand itself. This eliminates needless carbon emissions and use of resources from not having to have the item packaged and shipped to us, and then repackaged and shipped out again to the customer; and not having to run major warehouse operations in addition to those of our brands.
If you have purchased multiple items from different brands at the same time, each item will be sent separately and directly from each individual brand.
Immaculate Vegan is therefore not directly responsible for the delivery of items purchased on our site. Responsibility for this is passed to the brand, once the purchase has been made and payment has been collected by us. However, we manage all customer communications, so if you have any issues with delivery of your item, please contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org
Delivery Destinations and Costs
We currently ship to the following territories : Europe, North America (US, Canada, and Mexico), Australia, New Zealand, Israel, UAE, Hong Kong, and Japan.
Note : Each of our brands select which countries in the world they deliver to, and they set their own delivery costs for each country (which will vary). If this is not clearly stated on the individual product page, then you will be able to check in the shopping bag before proceeding to payment.
Our brands also select their own couriers, which may also differ by country.
Delivery and Promotions
If you use a promotional code, the reduction is usually applied only to the price of the product and not the delivery cost.
Customs Duties / Import Taxes
Your order may be subject to duties or taxes upon arrival into your country based on where you live. You are responsible for paying any duties or taxes that apply. These are government-imposed duties that we have no control over as a retailer. Should you require more information, please contact your local customs office.
Depending on the postal services used by the brand, you will have either an option to pay any additional fees online by following the tracking number available once order is shipped or directly to your courier upon delivery. NB: you will be required to pay these import taxes before your order will be released to you.
Unfortunately, if you fail to pay any charges and the parcel is returned to sender, we will not be able to refund your order.
Once you have ordered one or more items from Immaculate Vegan, the relevant brand will be immediately notified by Immaculate Vegan. This initiates the processing of your order, and ultimately delivery to you.
We ask our brands to send items to you as quickly and as cost efficiently as possible. Please bear in mind that products ordered from countries far away from your location will likely take longer to get to you.
A delivery confirmation email from Immaculate Vegan will be sent to you as soon as the order has been sent. This email will contain a tracking number and the date the brand dispatched the item.
If you want to know the status of your delivery, please use the tracking number and link in this delivery confirmation email. This is the easiest and quickest way for you to get this information.
If a brand is experiencing a high volume of orders, or other factors such as poor weather or postal strikes, delivery may be delayed by a few days.
If you experience a delivery issue which has not been resolved by the brand, please contact us and we will do our best to resolve this.
Incorrect Address Details
Please ensure your address is completed correctly and a valid phone number is available at order. Immaculate Vegan does not take responsibility for lost or undelivered items if the address is incorrect.
If your order is returned to the brand, the cost of redelivery must be paid before it is despatched again.
Please see our Returns Policy
We hope you love the items you buy from us; we take the utmost care in ensuring our goods are of a high quality. Additionally, as shipping goods has an environmental impact, we hope to minimise returns by giving you as much information as possible about each product.
However, we understand that from time to time things might not be quite what you expected. So here is our policy and instructions if you ever need to return a product:
Immaculate Vegan is a multi-brand marketplace. That means we offer products from different brands based in different countries. So you need to return your item directly to the brand supplier, not to Immaculate Vegan.
If you want to return an item, you need to inform Immaculate Vegan, rather than the brand. Please email us at email@example.com. You have 14 days to inform us of your desire to return an item, and then a further 14 days from the date you notify us to send back the item.
All items returned must be in their original condition – unused, unworn, unwashed, in the original packaging and with original labels and any hygiene stickers attached. All beauty products must be unopened, with all seals in place. Unfortunately, our suppliers will not be able to accept any items that fail to meet these criteria.
Many of our suppliers don’t include a returns slip in the package itself for environmental reasons; so if you don't find a returns address and returns information in your package, please don't worry. Just email us at firstname.lastname@example.org, and we will send you a returns slip with the returns address for that brand.
What can be returned?
Any item – regular priced or sale price – may be returned and refunded. This includes items purchased with a promotional or discount code.
However, any custom-made / made to order products cannot be returned and refunded.
If the supplier offers free returns, a Free Post sticker or code will be included in the packaging.
If the supplier does not offer free returns, you are responsible for packaging up the item and posting it back at your own cost. In this instance, we recommend a signed-for delivery with proof of postage.
The exception to this is when the item is faulty, in which case the brand is responsible for paying for costs of returning the item. Please inform us if you receive a faulty item as soon as possible, by emailing email@example.com.
Any delivery costs or import taxes you may have had to pay to receive an item cannot be refunded by us upon the return of that item.
You are responsible for any item being returned until it arrives back at the supplier.
It is your responsibility to fill out any customs declaration form correctly. When filling in the customs declaration form, please consult with your post office personnel how to declare a return exempt from import duties. Otherwise the brand may be charged customs import taxes, which they will deduct from your refund amount.
Processing your return
Once your returned item is received and inspected, the supplier will notify us, and we will then send you an email confirming this. We will also notify you of the approval or rejection of your refund.
If your return is approved, your refund will be processed. We aim to refund you as soon as we can, once your returned item has been processed by the supplier.
We are legally obliged to ensure your money is refunded within 14 working days of receipt of the returned goods in saleable condition.
Please note that original shipping costs are not refundable unless the delivered item is faulty.
Most of our brand partners allow exchanges, although some only offer a return and refund. If you wish to have an exchange, please contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org.
If you have had to pay import duty on a purchase, then you may be able to reclaim that from your local tax office, if you return the goods. Immaculate Vegan is not responsible for any additional customs and taxes applied to an order.
Returns & Damages
Immaculate Vegan is not liable for any items damaged or lost during delivery. If this does occur, please let us know and we will contact the brand and then follow up with you.
Cancellation policy and process
You can cancel an order that you have paid for if it has not yet been dispatched. To do this, please notify us by using the Contact Us form on our website or email us at email@example.com.
We aim to process your refund within than 5 days.
Any custom-made or made-to-order products cannot be cancelled.
