Our Story

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 job at a diplomatic mission that initially brought me to India in 2007 and – against all odds – I fell in love with this country."

The birth of Monsoon and Beyond

"I always had a passion for design and interiors throughout my life, but only when I moved to India, I translated my passion for design into a profession. 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, yet eclectic design understanding, I collaborated with artisans across India and applied ancient Indian handicraft techniques. The result was a perfect synergy between design and handicraft."
