Our Story

The Beginning

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. 

Our Values

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. 

Unique Prints & Inspiration

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.
