Monkind is a family-run kid’s wear brand based in Berlin whose focus is on sleek, minimal design and sustainability. They concentrate on the structure, the design, the overall aesthetic message and aim to create something subtle, functional and timeless. Through original pattern and textile designs along with a professionally trained and finely honed aesthetic, Monkind creates simple, innovative and stylish children’s clothes that are enjoyed by parents and children alike across the globe.
The designer and lifeblood of Monkind is Valeria. She was born in the former Soviet Union into a professional artistic family and was taught from birth the importance of the aesthetic and the relevance of composition. After graduating from a Berlin fashion school her love of fashion prospered and bloomed. Valeria began to make clothes for her first child, which rapidly became a passion and culminated in her decision to create a kid’s wear label, thus Monkind was born. Her husband Stewart joined forces shortly after and together they opened their first store in Berlin in 2014.
