MONKIND is a family-run kid’s wear brand based in Berlin whose focus is on sleek and minimal design paired with sustainability and natural, organic materials.
We concentrate on structure, mood and design to create a unified aesthetic message that is subtle, functional and timeless. Through original pattern and textile design, as well as our finely-honed aesthetic we are able to create simple, innovative and stylish children’s and adult’s fashion that is enjoyed by parents and children 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 an organic 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. Since then they’ve become one of the biggest kid’s wear brands in Germany with hundreds of stockists worldwide.
