It's hard to believe the Chuchka journey started only a few years ago back in 2015 from sunny Bondi where our founder Stefanie Schwartz grew the label into a thriving small business and cult brand, best know for our cult neoprene bags.
Made from the same material used on wetsuits, the CHUCHKA neoprene bag now sits in the closet of stylish Aussie ladies and beach lovers far and wide (plus many international travellers and savvy online shoppers), quickly soaring in popularity for our alluring blend of coastal chic meets sporty luxe.
Now the young mum of three, who started the business as a creative side project while on maternity leave, is here to bring this Aussie flavour of armwear to the international market, starting with fashion-forward ladies in New York and LA who love their Australian owned brands.
“We’ve had some great meetings with partners overseas and I can’t wait for Chuchka to explode in the international market in the same way they have here at home in Australia,” says Stefanie.
Featured in Australian Vogue, Made of Fashion, and Goop, and stocked in over 300 major department stores and boutiques in Australia, Chuchka was soon spied by US-based Fitness Studio SoulCycle and a collaboration was born for an exclusive range of SoulCycle Chuchkas featuring their famed skeleton crossbow.
With the immediate popularity of the SoulCycle bags in store, Chuchka looks forward to more exclusive collaborations and partnerships with aligned brands and US retailers looking to expand their offering of hot Australian owned labels with a strong history of success.
