Monsoon is on an exciting journey having identified where we want to be and how we’re going to get there.  Monsoon’s journey began in 1970 with founder Peter Simon embarking on a life-changing trip across Asia and coming back to London where he started his first stall on Portobello Road.  Wanting to share the colourful inspirations from his experience, the first Monsoon collections featured beautiful bohemian clothes made in Indian villages using hand-loomed cotton and silk fabrics, organic vegetable dyes and artisan block-printing techniques still used within our production process today.  
 
As a founder member of the Ethical Trading Initiative (ETI), Monsoon have been at the forefront of driving sustainable improvements in working conditions and livelihoods wherever we do business. Believing in the positive power of trade rather than aid we have always connected our British contemporary designs with our network of craftspeople in villages and small communities across the globe to give them sustainable independence. We still work with some of the same craftspeople as we did in 1973, with new generations joining the family business over time.
