From the Japanese monoもの (thing) and bi 美 (beautiful), Monobi is a brand synonymous of urban style functionality and high performance design. MONOBI is the made in Italy brand that conveys the integration between textiles and clothing. Guided by the careful work of expert passionate hands, the fabrics are transformed into garments expressing design and functionality, concentrating style and technology, in exceptional balance between quality and sustainability.
THE BESTEHUB AS MELTING POT
Giving value to our territory: an old building comes back to life
The home and creative heart of MONOBI is at once a physical place open to contaminations and a space-laboratory where fabrics take on new shapes, as well as the place where the integration between textiles and clothing happens. A 3.300 sqm woolen mill located near the centre of Prato has been completely renovated becoming home to the new headquarters of MONOBI brand.
THE POWER OF IDEAS
It all began with an intuition, a simple but revolutionary idea: to process cotton by applying finishings typical of wool fibers. Everyday MONOBI has been writing a new page in the culture of Made in Italy textiles, keeping its industrial approach together with skillful craftmanship, restless creativity and the most complete traceability.
BEING SUSTAINABLE FROM THE RAW MATERIAL TO THE FINISHED GARMENT
MONOBI is the perfect integration between textile research and the industrial production of fabrics and finished garments, influenced by the old Italian tradition of craftsmanship. The fully integrated supply chain and made in Italy manufacturing are key to MONOBI quality and sustainability credentials. A fully vertical made in Italy production in an area range of just 20 Km throughout the textile district of Prato (Tuscany).

TRACEABILITY TAKES ONE STEP FORWARD
An entire industrial complex keeping textile design and garment development together: a textile production process that starts from greige fabric preparation and arrives up to the knitting and tailoring of the finished garment, ensuring the reliability and sustainability of the system. The outcome takes the shape of the best made in Italy garments bringing a RFID NFC tag inside, recognition point of any MONOBI product journey. At the same time a proof tool of the fully traceable vertical production chain showing all the manufacturing phases each garment went through and a useful report for the final transparency.

The exploration of MONOBI fully traceable production chain - from the raw material to the finished garment - will be accessible from any mobile device.
ITALIAN DESIGN + CRAFTSMANSHIP + MANUFACTURING
OUR STORY IS MADE BY PEOPLE
Made by people means “made of people”. The careful attention each garment is treated with attests the endless workmanship of expertly crafted tailors, as well as the technicity of any person involved into the making process. The manufacturing of each garment takes entirely place inside MONOBI internal laboratories, ensuring a quality driven approach on each piece of the collection. Trusting the centrality of people, strongly believing in team working and in the personal and professional enrichment, MONOBI draws resources while giving back a value which goes well beyond the normal process of transformation.
