The story begins with one man and his vision; to bring vibrant, colourful, hand-crafted artisan clothes from faraway places to the markets of London. It is a journey that started on a hippy commune in Ibiza, 1970, and finished with an overland trip east, through Afghanistan and India. Founder Peter Simon returned from his life-changing adventures to pursue a new passion for beautiful, bohemian-inspired pieces with hand-printed, hand-woven and crochet design details, which he started to trade from a stall on Portobello Road, London.
Three years later, he opened the first Monsoon store in Beauchamp Place. The first Monsoon collections featured clothes made with hand-loomed cotton and silk fabrics, organic vegetable dyes and artisan block-printing techniques.
