Bangalore-based design-centric brand Chumbak has onboarded circular technology product Relove. Relove allows Chumbak customers to re-sell their pre-loved Chumbak products to interested buyers on the Chumbak website.
Chumbak was founded in 2010 by husband-wife duo Shubhra & Vivek with an intent to bring contemporary Indian design to your everyday Home & Lifestyle. Today, their design mission has evolved to showcase cultures & artforms from India and across the world in our unique, joyful handwriting. Their production units encourage local manufacturing, allowing for better quality control while positively impacting community livelihoods.
The initiative to encourage peer to peer sales of pre-loved items adds to their mission of embracing sustainability as a core brand intent. While the industry is seeing apparel at the forefront, Chumbak hopes to add to the product assortment by encouraging customers to list laptop sleeves, bags, watches, cushion covers & furnishing.
Vasant Nangia, CEO, Chumbak stated, “Chumbak was born as a brand that manufactured in small, mindful batches. Over the years, we’ve kept our inventory forecasting conservative to avoid overproduction & wastage. With Relove, we’re taking our commitment to conservation a step further by enabling our customers to sell their preloved Chumbak products on our platform.”
Kirti Poonia, Co-founder, Relove added “We are so honored to be Chumbak’s chosen partner to power their resale initiative. With advanced technology, newer sustainable models are possible in retail. This is a big step towards reducing the brand’s carbon footprint while helping its customers”
