AND THE LIKE-MINDS.
Manonik is a New York-based art-design studio, founded by Yoshiyuki Minami, a clothing maker and a textile artist. Manonik’s creations are the results of critical explorations with the finest and most thoughtful materials, attained locally and domestically. Through collaborations with independent, artisanal farmers and mills, all materials are crafted to the highest standard of comfort and durability. Every garment, handcrafted for life, is an artistic expression and a showcase of craftsmanship. Manonik represents an alternative mode of thinking, creating one-of-a-kind luxury wear for those seeking beauty and comfort beyond the norm.
