Founded in 2010 and known for its apparel and home decor products having quirky designs and bright colors, Chumbak, for the last five years, has managed to grow over 300% year over year. Started with a very simple idea – Give the world something cool to take back from their travels to India.
What started with souvenirs stocked in multi brand outlets soon transformed itself into a business spanning stores across the country in both large format, full experience stores and pop up stores across popular malls and high streets.
Life is funky and colorful, when it comes to working at Chumbak. Enter their office and you’ll be greeted with the signature yellow and teal colors that have come to define a lot of Chumbak products – plus they add so much cheer!
The glass walls present in the office is to enjoy Bangalore’s lovely weather, and also represents space and openness – helps the creative minds to grow, and have the freedom to express themselves better through design.
If you ever visit the Chumbak office, you’ll keep hearing a lot of things like ‘give me the Pantone colour!’ or ‘needs more negative space’. Everyone here eats, sleeps and breaths design, whether they’re in the design team or not, and that’s really how they manage to remain on the top in what they do!
Here, you’ll see messy desks a lot, but they’re usually full of pinned-up doodles, designs and inspiration. Plus, they say the messier people’s desks, the more creative they are, so this is no coincidence.
