Gokyo, the homegrown outdoor apparel and accessories brand, has unveiled its inaugural store in Mumbai's Malad district, showcasing a diverse product line, including trekking pants, jackets, base layers, and accessories like trekking poles and sleeping bags. Expanding its footprint, Gokyo plans to grow through franchising and partnerships with outdoor apparel outlets nationwide.
Having initially thrived online, Gokyo, operational for just a year, gained significant momentum through its website, Instagram, and Amazon presence. The brand now aims to strengthen its online standing by venturing into multi-brand e-commerce platforms.
Founder Venkatesh Maheshwari, also known as Venki, a seasoned trekker and mountaineer with three decades in the apparel industry, emphasizes Gokyo's significance as more than a brand—a manifestation of a Himalayan-inspired dream delivering premium outdoor wear for like-minded Indians.
