Ever since we embarked on the Nomads journey in 1989, we have always been pioneers of the ‘Trade not Aid’ ethos, and we are proud to have developed and nurtured valuable business channels with India. These partnerships have added to the country’s economy whilst establishing the Nomads brand and ultimately providing contemporary, ethically produced clothing to our customers.
We knew from day one that we would have to work hard and be proactive in ensuring that no part of the Nomads supply chain would be involved in any of the negative practices so prevalent in the clothing industry, so we operate a closely monitored fair trade policy.
We visit our suppliers in India regularly throughout the year to ensure our standards are being met and to work on developing new designs with our talented team. From the initial pattern cutting process to the traditional artisan details, we personally know where our products are made and have a good relationship with each supplier.
Below are some of our partners
