About Us

Founded by Chef Shawn Harrison, Tephra Vegan has become a movement to empower those who stand for something greater than themselves. 

Tephra is defined as "solid matter ejected during a volcanic eruption."
The word brings a lot of meaning behind what we are trying to accomplish, breaking new ground while shattering old dogmas and perceptions.

Veganism is a way of living which seeks to exclude, as far as is possible and practicable, all forms of exploitation of, and cruelty to, animals for food, clothing or any other purpose.

We believe clothing with bold messages is an effective medium to facilitate a great pride in your lifestyle as well as begin conversations that may have never existed otherwise.

Manifest Your Message to elicit change in yourself & others.
