Our 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. Our 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.

From the beginning, Monsoon worked with craftspeople in villages and small communities. It was clear that those communities and craftspeople wanted trade, not aid, to give them sustainable independence. In 1994, The Monsoon Accessorize Trust was founded. Through education, healthcare and income generation projects, the trust continues to help disadvantaged women and children across Asia.
