Monsoon was found in 1973 by Peter Simon. The original focus was always on clothes with an ethic origin from faraway places, such as India and Afghanistan. Their first collections were made from hand-loomed cotton in Indian villages, however growth of the company allowed them to diverse into eyewear. Monsoon eyewear has developed a strong brand with a highly distinctive identity. Their heritage in using the intrinsic beauty of fabric, colour and technique are evident in their eyewear collection that inspires the traveller and bohemian style in their products.
