Duncan and Vicky met while backpacking around India in the late 1980s. With only £200 left in their pockets, they used the money to fill up a trunk of wonderful ethnic clothes and head back to the UK.
They soon returned to India with the profits they had made, mixing business with pleasure; staying at Buddhist retreats, discovering crafts at local markets and picking up gorgeous handmade fabrics along the way. A shared love of India and its culture inspired them to start up their own clothing company. Inspired by Indian craft, they worked with a designer to create styles perfect for the European market, finding a niche for bohemian fashion with an ethnic feel.
Nomads create clothing with the individual woman in mind. For someone who sees life as a wonderful adventure. Soft, colourful, feminine clothes that are comfortable and flattering. Nomads also has a respect for people and nature, believing strongly in fair trade values and following ethical fashion guidelines.
Nomads continue to travel to India several times a year to develop collections both in the spring and autumn. Working with a UK designer, using exclusive prints and unique styles, this ensures that Nomads collections are always fresh and original.
