A Sustainable Partner
Who They Are
Monty, at the incredible young age of 22, is the prime example of an “accidental entrepreneur”. While working with a nonprofit in his home country of Indonesia, Monty witnessed locals creating bags from upcycled materials. Living in a country where waste management infrastructure can't support the large amounts of trash created, he was inspired to make use of all of the materials left behind after textile production and create something different–hats! After pitching his idea to no avail, Monty put his idea on the backburner. But luckily for us, when one door closes, another opens!
Almost a year later, he showed his designs to a friend and future business partner, Anthony Zhang. Anthony loved the idea, and soon after, Topiku was born. From Kickstarter, to Start Up, to Trend Setter– Topiku is on a mission to become the world’s most sustainable hat manufacturer.
