THE DESIGNER

FROM AUSTRIA TO INDIA

This is the story of Monsoon and Beyond's founder, Austrian designer Vera Fritsch: "I was born and brought up in picturesque Austria and lived in France, England, Italy and Sweden before I made India my home. It was my corporate job that initially brought me to India in 2007 and–against all odds–I fell in love with this country." I always had a passion for design and textiles throughout my life, but only when I moved to India, I translated this passion into a profession. 

THE STORY OF MONSOON AND BEYOND

The core idea was to bring India's beauty, culture and magic to everyone's home around the world. Without compromising on my rather contemporary, European design understanding, I collaborated with artisans across India and applied ancient Indian handicraft techniques. The result was a perfect synergy between design and craftsmanship."
