Why we chose the Mons Royale Yotei: Sustainable, warm, Star Trek vibes
Mons Royale is a New Zealand born brand that uses natural fibres to create sleek, functional, and incredibly warm base layers. Established in 2009 in the mountainous town of Wanaka, New Zealand, Mons was inspired by the local elements and rugged high country farms that the merino sheep (on which the base layers are made from) like to graze.
Hamish and Hannah Acland (the founders of Mons) have a background as both professional skiers and clothing designers; a great combination, we think you’ll agree, when it comes to creating a sustainable apparel brand. The base layers are impressively made out of 100% merino wool; a material that’s sourced from those handy Kiwi sheep near the Mons Royale HQ.
Fabrics and Features
The Mons Royale Yotei Tech base layers come in a variety of different colours. They all feature a cool split design of two blocks of colours that, in our minds at least, really gives us some strong ‘Star Trek outfit’ vibes. To save you from ever forgetting what brand you’re wearing, you’ve also got large Mons Royale branding down the left hand sleeve.
