OUR STORY

Superior denim and apparel, carefully sourced and conscientiously made.

In 2006 Monkee Genes was born out of frustration of the denim market, wanting to offer something fresh, vibrant and youthful, with an eco and ethical conscience.Founder Phil Wildbore wanted to prove that there is such a thing as looking fashionable whilst supporting sustainability. Fast forward to 2018 and the brand has grown in to an ethical fashion destination, with all of our garments made in   GOTS Certified factories.We work hard to protect the people who make our clothes, working closely with our factories to ensure safe working conditions and a decent living wage. Our commitment to ethics paired with a innovative fits offers a point of difference to the denim market. All organic, all ethically produced, all fairly made!

OUR MANTRA

Respect for Individual

As a child I always had a fascination with evolution and a yearning for mankind to recognise its humble beginnings. Monkee Genes celebrates where we came from, and is committed to respecting this planet we share. Our name pays tribute to our jeans that have evolved organically, consciously made to fit the natural rhythm of life. During my travels, one of our factories shared their ethos of ‘Respect for Individual’, which went on to become our brand mantra for values we have always had - respecting individuals, regardless of faith, race or creed.
