Chor Bazaar

September 3rd, 2008

Chor Bazaar is an Indie – Indian – fused t-shirt label based in Brooklyn, NY, with firm roots in, India.


Our designs are meant not just to be “cool” but to evoke memories of experiencing India, the India that our parents were raised in and the one that exists today. Both are far different but both are still very Indian.


Umang, Chor Bazaar:

Our mission is to expand the Indian-fusion art form to another realm. Most have experienced this, “fusion”, in music and literature but have hardly seen this transpire into urban apparel. We utilize the medium of our graphic t-shirts to assist in creating an identity that stems farther than mainstream’s portrayal of Indian culture.


We take great care not to exploit South Asian culture and deter from using kitschy or religious connotations, like the Om symbol and a deity with eight arms. Our shirts are designed to allow anyone to wear them without the dismay of the South Asian community.


Curry is played out and there is so much more for us to project.


Chor Bazaar adds a bit of fun and integrity to the idea of identity and culture.
