How We Got Started
Badass Monkies was started in 2011 by Natasha and her daughter who relocated to Kuala Lumpur from London UK. Badass Monkies was the nickname given to Natasha when she arrived in Kuala Lumpur by her work colleague Chevita Silva who was so inspired by the persona and attitude of working with such an energetic character.
Just after a few months, of living in Asia, Natasha noticed the different levels of poor individuals and family’s living an underprivileged lifestyle on the streets and in the Kampung Villages. Natasha's inspiration can from meeting 12 undocumented women living under a bridge in Brickfields, Kuala Lumpur via a registered charity called Redeeming Rose and decided to help support these ladies by providing dry food, toiletries, clothing, and organizing day trips.
After just six months word got around to the expatriate community and with financial support from Locals, Expats, International and regional corporate companies, Natasha began to create unique urban brand apparel and CSR initiatives that fulfill the Corporate Social Responsibility policy to empower the purpose of humanity.
