For me, visiting a Chumbak store (mostly offline) is more like a stress reliever than out of the need to buy something, which I anyway end up doing. Bright colours, quirky prints and whimsical details - are always a welcome sight. Now add these features to a bag and it becomes hard to resist it (because no such thing as too many bags, right?). However, if you have a ton of Chumbak bags already, you might want to check out these brands that make bags that are just as whimsy as Chumbak.
