Charmed by Chumbak!

Desi: Check.

Chic: Check.
Classy: Check.

Stylish: Check.

Useful: Check.

The five pronged test is just PERFECTLY fulfilled by everything that Chumbakโ€™s products stand for! I stumbled upon their line of products at Anokhi, Chamiers Road, in Chennai, and then later in Ashvita Bistroโ€™s Masala Chai – where there is a BIGGER range of AWESOME in the form of products ๐Ÿ™‚ Chumbak is a completely Desi endeavour, comprising such an Indian charm, and the stylish elegance of handmade class.

So as a little testing-the-waters step, I bought two notebooks (As a real nutty Nerd, Notebooks and Stationery of every kind fascinate me) and two soaps, in Lavender and Mixed Fruit. So hereโ€™s the lowdown on the stuff I got!

At first glance, I thought that their products were unfairly priced, at Rs. 100 a handmade soap, and a tiny notebook at Rs. 85. But Iโ€™ve been pleasantly surprised! The notebooks are a really classy affair, and the pages are beautiful, making note-taking a really lovely experience. The soaps, ah well. Where do I begin?

The fragrance is simply authentic and fabulous, the feel is lovely, and the lather is amazing. There was a mild disappointment for me when I wound up mistakenly throwing the Lavender Soap, ๐Ÿ™ carelessness getting the better of me when I suddenly decided to clean my house.

The Lavender Soap promises the following: It relaxes the body from tension and makes you happy and relaxed after the bath. Ingredients: Lavender oil, Tulsi, Essential oils and Soap base. 75 gms of pure happiness ๐Ÿ™‚


The Mixed Fruit Soap promises the following: Mixed Fruit Soap relaxes the body and is a great stress reliever. Not to be eaten with cream. Ingredients: Apricot, Green Apple, Mango and Peach extracts, Essential oils, Glycerine and Soap base. 100 gms of pure happiness ๐Ÿ™‚



And hereโ€™s the cutest part: An appended Note at the back of the soaps: Do not try and eat it even with ice cream. It looks tempting. It even smells amazing. Resist! To check out everything Chumbak has on offer, you can even shop online at www.chumbak.in!

      Hey it is lovely! You actually have little chunks in between, as if someone baked a cake with fruit chips in them! And it smells fabulous – it’s a great buy!
