About Chumbak

Chumbak was founded in 2010 as an idea for creating a range of fun souvenirs for India and Indians. It was a simple thought. Let’s give the world something cool to take back from their travels to India. Chumbak also loved the design and that was always above everything. Period. Though little did we know what was to follow. What started with souvenirs stocked in multi brand outlets soon transformed itself into a business spanning stores across the country in both our large format, full experience stores and pop up stores across popular malls and high streets.
