Turning racing relics into lifestyle accessories.

Turning racing relics into lifestyle accessories.

MONGRIP™ is a Monegasque company created in 2016, which unites Brazilian racing driver Augusto Farfus and Italian businessman Giancarlo Medici as partners.



MONGRIP™ is the only lifestyle brand that turns authentic racing relics into emotional fashion accessories. Products made with a portion of the tire used in the Formula 1™ Race, the perfume of the competition managed by our processes unchanged in its imperfections and exclusive beauty.

 

Giancarlo Medici, an Italian entrepreneur and collector of memorabilia items, has always had a passion for motorsports with Formula 1™ racing in particular.



Parallel to his professional career, at the end of the nineties, Giancarlo began to think, about how racing memorabilia & relics could become unique creations and jewelry available to the many enthusiasts like him.



The idea began to take shape in 2008 when, at the end of one Formula One™ Grand Prix™, Giancarlo noted the incredible number of fans invading the track to collect pieces of rubber from the tyres left on the asphalt to take home as a souvenir.


Years of research and testing followed, and the selection of qualified suppliers would follow until November 2015, when the project became a reality: MONGRIP™ was born.  
 



MONGRIP™ develops exclusive products made from certified tires used in past Formula 1™ and other Motorsport championships, procured by its own consultants and international experts from racing teams, professional and private collectors.




Craftmanship. Born & designed in Monaco, Made in Italy.


 

The production process results from an exclusive international patent.



The design is the result of the perfect mix between the quantity of raw material used, the creativity of our team of artists, the intricate workmanship of our craftsmen on every piece of tyre and the expert goldsmiths that complete each piece, embellishing them with precious metals.

Each MONGRIP™ bracelet is therefore different from one another, making them an unrepeatable, exclusive, original collector’s item. Everyl MONGRIP™ bracelet has a unique number to identify the tyre from which they were made (limited to max 500 units per tyre).
