It takes more than guts to reach glory.
It takes confidence, perseverance and a spirit of giving to go the distance.
The struggles of labourers in Odisha inspired Sonia to leave her high paying corporate job to start a fashion brand – Monk & MEi.
Mumbai-based Monk & MEi is a sustainable clothing brand. It began its journey in 2018 by working on contract manufacturing of corporate uniforms.
The team started with a small setup. But eventually expanded into a factory. Today, the 100-sewing machine setup of Monk & Mei in Odisha employs 91 tribal women and rural youth karigars (artisans) from the state.
Team Monk & Mein were the first one during the early days of pandemic to offer virtual trials on their website. With 55% buyers from Tier I cities & 45% from Tier II and III in India, Monk & MEi have buyers in USA, Canada, Australia, Europe and Dubai.
The label also caters to women of all body sizes. Right from XXS to 5XL across age groups of 22 years to 55 years.
One can buy the clothes directly from the website or even place an order through their social media handles: Facebook and Instagram.
