MONI & J is a premium fashion and lifestyle brand designed and handcrafted for the modern active woman.
Founded in 2012 by Syrian designer and creative director Manar Laktineh, MONI & J integrates artistry and modernity with thoughtful negotiations between unparalleled craftsmanship, timeless elegance, and enduring functionality.
Manar drew from her Middle Eastern culture, her degree in information science, and her background in leather making to establish a brand that is elegant and true to its unique, refined style no matter what trends come and go. The collections are designed to blend easily with any look and emphasize fashion and transitional accessories that are ideal for woman of all ages.
Fast acceptance and high demand of MONI & J handbags meant that the brand had to evolve its operations. The MONI & J Online Shop was launched in 2015 to cater to women and fashion aficionados worldwide. By continuing to offer an exquisite product, exceptional client service, and on-time delivery, customers became loyal to the MONI & J Brand and it became among the online shopper’s top choice for fashionable and stylish handbags.
MONI&J’s atelier is located in Lebanon and the headquarters are in Kuwait. The brand has over 25 years of collective experience, with craftsmen and employees working day in and day out to design and produce premium quality goods for clients around the world. You can find MONI & J online (link to online shop) and at regional boutiques (enter locations: KSA, UAE, Qatar).
MONI&J’s fast paced expansion illustrates its growth strategy and ongoing fascination with representations of contemporary femininity.
