Originally from Poland, Monika founded Monnarita in 2018 while travelling around the world, she came across beautiful Indonesia, which is full of the potential for natural materials and sources.
She met local artists and discovered unique techniques that are long-standing craftsmanship of the local people, passed down from generation to generation.
Her background in architectural design and her passion for beautifully crafted household items inspired her to start a business and share her wonderful designs.
Her work shows her love for the versatility and style of natural materials such as rattan, water hyacinth, bamboo, seagrass and coconut.
Her vision is that through Monnarita she can collaborate with other creative designers, architects and homeowners who share her passion for supporting natural, sustainable ways to communicate her values of creativity, wisdom, humanity and culture to the world.
