The Suburban Monk
The Suburban Monk invites people to create a life that makes sense, feels good and is so much fun! Our cornerstone product, Syd, is a smiling thumbs-up buddha like statue who is a universal symbol of encouragement and joy. Giving Back is an important part of The Suburban Monk mission. Each month, we give a portion of our proceeds to a select cause.
Syd: our thumbs-up monk statue
Carlos Santana Has one. So does the Dalai Lama. He’s even had an audience with the Pope! Born in 2012, Syd was created by The Suburban Monk herself – Founder & CEO, Ellen Atkins. Ever since, he has been sweeping the world and sharing his magic. He comes in two sizes, a variety of colors, and soon will be accompanied by a range of accessories.
