About MONZOON

Sales 1,130
On Etsy since 2010

Intentionally Designed. Ethically Crafted. Fairly Priced.

Welcome to Monzoon
Unique Clothing & Accesories with an Artistic Touch.
Hello I'm Mane, I´m chilean, and I love to travel and make new experiences.
Once a good friend told me:
" When I get LOST in new places, where the routine doesn't exists… is when I most
FIND MYSELF.. "
That made a lot of sense for me….

When I was 24 I decided to go live in Barcelona.
This great city was the beginning of my trips.

In 2009 I was traveling 8 months through Asia.
During this time I got the idea to start making Leather fanny packs because they are so usefull as travel bags and when I started looking around, the ones I founded were not nice.

One day drinking chai in the cafes of Main bazar, New Delhi, a man that was also drinking chai, asked me, pointing the bag I was wearing at my hips :
- ¿Who made this?
- ¿How much did you pay for it?

This 2 questions were the beginning of a nice and productive Relationship.
His name was: Shakeel Ahmeed.

He is Muslim and lives since all his life in New Delhi. He has a small and Familiar Factory of Leather Accessories.
We start talking and I told him I was looking for a place where I could bring my designs to reality. He told me: " Come to my Factory, I can do it, I need work, please come and I show you…."
He was so excited about the idea that I propose new designs, that we can work together…
Mee too as well!
Next day we met on the same chai place, and we went by tuc-tuc to his factory.
His factory was far away from Main Bazaar.
We crossed together whole Delhi to get there…
When we arrived, he presented me his family. His daughter Saima, his brothers, and his whole family that worked in the Factory.
Hundred of pieces of leather flying around, some old tables, some sewing machines, and all the walls covered with paper patterns.. waiting to be produced..
We sat together in a work table and we start drawing.
Once the pattern was made, we selected the leather.. and we started sewing and making our first Hip bag.
When it was ready we both were super happy with the result. It was really nice and confortable!

So this was the start.
I became his client, and he became my manufacturer.

- …"MONZOON" we should call the label, Shakeel told me.
he continued… : " MONZOON is when the heat is so high, when its so hot, that the rain must come to fresh us all . It´s a relief . A present from the Gods…. "
- Yes, Maria, Shakeel told me, Monzoon is a fresh breeze for me and my factory… Thank You!
I just found it great.. So that will be the name!! : "MONZOON".

From that day I became his client, and I bring fix and good work to his factory.
In this same big travel , this kind of causality happened also in Thailand , where I met Kimmy and I loved this experience and art in textile experimenting, and we work together since then also. Every year I go to Asia and make a New Collection of Clothing & Accesories.
MONZOON is a FAIR TRADE label, you can trust that your goods were made ethically. The price payed for the manufacturing is good following the fair trade standards.
MONZOON provides fix work every year.

Since then, back to 2009, I go every year to India & Thailand and stay a month and more working and designing in the factory. We design and produce 1 collection per year.. We hope in the future, we can make more.
For me its a pleasure being there, I enjoy so much! In a past life, I really believe I was indian :-)

… So, my friends, that is the story…
One travel changed my life, and re-direct my work.
I always dreamed on having a work that makes me travel, and somehow made sense for people… and it happened ...drinking a chai in New Delhi...
Namaste**
