Who We Are?
A family owned and operated business, Thamel Shop has its roots traced back to 1980s when it started with the name “Freak Street Garments” embodying the Hippie Culture at Freak Street. The shop grew in popularity and catered to a worldwide based customer base as people from across the globe fell in love with authentic and genuine Nepalese products.
To counter the fake Chinese factory made products and to allow people to shop conveniently for authentic Nepalese craft items led to the inception of Thamel Shop, the online retail wing of Freak Street Garments.
