Who we are

Who we are

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.

What we do
  • We are a lifestyle brand that enriches everyday life with natural beauty, positivity and endless discovery. We are passionate about connecting contemporary designs with a network of craftspeople, creating unique collections to be cherished.
How we do it
  • We have an eye for true beauty, whether that’s our intricate design details, colourful prints, fabrics or embellishments. We design in-house, source globally and ethically, and are dedicated to delivering keepsake quality.
Why we do it
  • We love to make our customers’ day just that little bit more special and out of the ordinary.
The difference we make
  • We believe in the positive, empowering, life-changing power of trade rather than aid. And we want to do right by the people who make our beautiful things.
  • As a founder member of the Ethical Trading Initiative (ETI), we’ve been at the forefront of driving sustainable improvements in working conditions and livelihoods wherever we do business. But that’s not all. Each year, the Monsoon Accessorize Trust (founded in 1994) supports life-changing projects in income-generation, healthcare and education for over 10,000 women and children throughout Asia.
