Edinburgh’s The Nomads Tent has been hard at work putting a great deal of its rich collection of artefacts online, for browsing and purchase. For forty years the shop and gallery has curated objects such as scarves, throws, cushions, rugs and kilims, which can be seen online, and many other objects such as masks, jewellery and decorative homeware can be seen on its social media pages. The collection recalls – and anticipates – a time when adventurous travel is available to us, such as the pictured contemporary and cubist-inspired chainstitch cushions from Kashmir.
The website also includes special offers and a gift voucher scheme, plus an invitation to share pictures and recollections of objects.
On 13th and 14th June, The Nomads Tent is taking part in an online version of World Textile Day – a free exhibition and fair trade market of world textiles held annually in venues across Great Britain.
