We’re Labo Mono, an urban outdoor brand based in Hackney, London and crowdfunded on Kickstarter in 2019.
We’re on a mission to inspire people to explore cities, on a bike and off a bike. From café to pub, rain or shine 🚲🌧🍺.
We’re doing this through bold, eco-friendly and cleverly versatile clothes designed for life’s journeys.
And we’re starting off with the Urban Jacket.
It all started because this guy in the picture (Ali) got caught in a rainstorm while biking home.
With no luck finding the perfect jacket, and being a designer by trade, he decided to create it.
Fast forward, after a year of sketches, prototypes, user tests and feedback from the community, the project was successfully funded on Kickstarter.
"Our aim is to create pieces of clothing that aren’t just pleasant to look at, but also cleverly functional and versatile.
All that while using sustainable materials, produced ethically."

It is important for us to be transparent about our different process, and especially the manufacturing one.
We screened many factories before committing to our current partner.
Main criteria: quality, social responsibility, sustainability and price.
And we are super proud (and lucky) to be working with our partner in Hebei, China.
A modern and well advanced technical garment factory that share our commitment to ethical manufacturing.
