In 2015, textile enthusiast and British maker Georgina Olley founded Nomad Design, a vibrant new interior and lifestyle accessories business. The products are distinguished by their beautiful, geometric Central Asian Ikats and a collection of African Mudcloths. Nomad Design aims to channel Georgie’s enthusiasm for consciously sourced materials and demonstrate how ancient and traditional making skills can survive and thrive in a modern world. Georgie is devoted to her design-led atelier in the heart of the Wiltshire countryside where she can be found lovingly hand making each item before sending it out to bring a stylish and colourful energy to British interiors.
Designed to appeal to those who value individuality, Nomad Design’s rapidly growing collection includes timeless pieces which have been exquisitely hand crafted from carefully curated fabrics and patterns, chosen specifically by Georgie for the British market. The collection comprises electric coloured yoga bags; stunning scatter cushions; jewel-coloured lampshades; capacious travel wash bags and perfectly proportioned make up bags.
Nomad Design products are characterised by the iconic, silk, Ikat fabric, resist-dyed with vivid colours used throughout the first collection. Hand-woven in the same way for over 1,600 years, Ikat is woven and resist-dyed along the Silk Road. It is this range of Ikats that Georgie has meticulously sourced and is dedicated to transforming into unique modern accessories for the home and the individual. The result is a collection of beautiful, everyday pieces that carry a tangible and historic legacy in their fibres.
Georgie’s aim when starting Nomad Design was not only to create pieces that are functional and beautiful, but also to draw attention to the dramatic and negative effects of industrial textile manufacturing on the rapidly declining, traditional skills of people and the environment. In a bid to counteract this decline, Nomad Design champions manufacturing in the UK, celebrates communities working together, and is mindful of clients who are looking to buy from a brand that has heritage and culture woven into its fibres; which starts with what and how customers buy.
