Monala is a sustainable fashion brand
Monala was founded by Monika Peganova. Every outfit – sweater, cardigan, skirt, pants – is born in a rural setting.
Handmade garments are made in the midst of nature in a relaxed way, putting all the air positivity in the knit. Monala’s goal is to make knitwear not only sustainable, modern, comfortable, but also allow you to feel at ease. It is a wish that any person, dressed in a Monalo cardigan, sweater, dress or other outfit, feels comfortable, can be himself and radiates inner peace and joy.
In these fast-paced days, it is vital that the garment is part of the basic wardrobe and does not need to be changed every season. Monala knitwear is the perfect proof that any product – dress, sweater or cardigan – is of high quality and durable, year-round.
The range of clothes is wide and shaped according to the seasons. During the cold season you will be warmed up by a special design cardigan, a warm cashmere sweater or an original mid-length dress. Knitted scarf and hat will match perfectly, add uniqueness and complete the image. And in the warm season, you will find exclusive crocheted long, medium or short dresses.
Monala team believes that you will find the right sweater, dress, pants, hat or scarf to create your own style!
