Alkeme Atelier is inspired by the ancient science of Alchemy and the process of transforming and combining the four elements (earth, water, fire and air). This idea of breaking down and rebuilding materials led them to produce their bags with sustainable, plant-based textiles. Tons of plastic is discarded every year, polluting lands, rivers, oceans, coasts and beaches. Alkeme Atelier takes this waste and transform it into a brand new material, a fabric used as the linings of their handbags. They hope taking these conscious steps will aid in the mission to protect the planet and cultivate an ethical and sustainable fashion. Alkeme Atelier are constantly innovating for sustainable materials. 

Material: Made in an innovative Vegan Leather, exclusive to ALKEME ATELIER. The material is lightweight, scratch resistant and high in strength. They produce this card case in a factory that is ISO 9001 certified.

The base of the fabric is made up of 70% recycled materials, such as discarded clothing, and small, very fine fibers. 40% is recycled post consumer polyester and 18% is pre consumer recycled polyester that is thrown away before use and 12% is recycled wood fiber and The top is coated with a high-grade oil. Utilizing mainly recycled textiles for their production helps to minimize waste and reduce the amount of toxic gases released from garments that were disposed of and otherwise end up in a landfill.

Developed by advanced research, Alkeme Atelier's signature fiber is responsibly engineered to outperform standard animal leather. While it has a similar appearance to leather, it's cleanable, longer lasting and almost one-third the weight of its animal counterpart. Vegan fiber is scratch-resistant, high in strength and water-repellent, making it an immensely durable material.

Lining: Made from a polyester created out of recycled plastic bottles. By buying this bag you are taking a small step to help keep our oceans and planet clean. Each lining uses about ten plastic bottles, preventing them from becoming ocean pollution or planet waste. We produce this material in a factory that has Global Recycled Standard certification.

Dust Bag: Made from 100% natural and biodegradable bamboo fiber. The antibacterial and odor-free properties of this textile make it the perfect protective layer for your handbag. However, you can also choose to use the dust bag as a shopping bag or reusable tote as each bag has sturdy straps attached to wear over your shoulder. We produce this material in a factory that has Global Recycled Standard certification.

    Designed in New York. PETA approved. Vegan & Cruelty Free.

      Alkeme Atelier is an American brand founded in 2019 in New York. The inspiration for the brand comes from the ancient science of alchemy and the process of transforming and combining the four elements (earth, water, fire and air) to create something new.

      The idea of breaking down and rebuilding materials has led the brand to produce handbags using sustainable, plant-based textiles. Alkeme Atelier use an innovative vegan leather that's exclusive to their brand. The base of the fabric is made up of 70% recycled materials, such as discarded clothing, and small, very fine fibres. Of the recycled materials, 40% is recycled post-consumer polyester, 18% is pre-consumer recycled polyester that is thrown away before use, and 12% is recycled wood fibre. The fabric is then coated with a high-grade oil.

      Developed by advanced research, this signature vegan leather is responsibly engineered to outperform standard animal leather. While it has a similar appearance to animal leather, it is cleanable, longer lasting and almost one-third the weight of its animal counterpart. It's also scratch-resistant, high in strength and water-repellent, making it an immensely durable material.

      Utilising mainly recycled textiles for their products helps Alkeme Atelier to minimise waste and reduce the amount of toxic gases released from garments that have been disposed of, and would otherwise end up in a landfill.

      The brand is also pioneering materials such as pineapple fibre, cactus fibre and grape fibre for their vegan leathers, which not only helps to support these farming communities, but also reduces the amount of natural resources needed to manufacture their products.

      The interior of each bag is also constructed with an eco-friendly textile. Recycled plastic bottles are transformed into a brand-new material which is used as the lining of each handbag.

      And lastly, their dust bags are made of bamboo fibre. Bamboo fibre is made from naturally- grown bamboo, and as a fabric it is anti-bacterial, odour-free and 100% biodegradable. Produced in Global Recycled Standard certified factories.

      Alkeme Atelier won the best brand award at Mipel in Milan (September 2019). The brand is PETA-Approved vegan and made in factories that are ISO 9001 certified and/or GRS certified.

      We are a marketplace. We don’t hold stock, so we eliminate the need for warehouses at our end.

      When you place an order, the product is sent directly by the brand straight to you. This is the simplest and most environmentally friendly way of delivering products.

      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.

      Delivery Costs and Destinations 

      Each of our brands select which countries in the world they are able to deliver to, and they set their own delivery costs for each country (which will vary). 

      They 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

      There may be duties or taxes upon arrival into your country based on where you live. Immaculate Vegan does not have control over these, and should you require more information, please contact your local customs office. You are responsible for paying any duties or taxes that apply.

      Delivery Timings

      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. 

      Delivery Confirmation

      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.

      Damages

      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 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. You have 14 days to inform us of your desire to return an item, and then another 14 days to send back the item. Please email us at customers@immaculatevegan.com.

      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 customers@immaculatevegan.com, 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

      Return costs

      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 customers@immaculatevegan.com.

      Any delivery costs or import taxes you may have had to pay to receive an item cannot be refunded upon the return of that item.

      You are responsible for any item being returned until it arrives back at its 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 get you refunded 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 delivered item is faulty.

      Exchanges

      Immaculate Vegan does not currently permit exchanges but rather a return and refund. Should you wish to buy the same item again, you will need to place a new order.

      Duties

      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 a customer order.

      Returns & Damages

      Immaculate Vegan is not liable for any items damaged or lost during delivery.

      Please contact the brand directly. They will follow up with you. If for any reason, your issue is not satisfactorily resolved, feel free to contact us.

      Cancellation policy and process
