Established in 1983 by Rufus Reade, The Nomads Tent is a shop gallery space. Our small team import directly from sources in Iran, India, Turkey and elsewhere in Asia, where we try to collect interesting and authentic things. An Aladdin's Cave of tribal art, selling everything from rugs, runner and kilims, to furniture, jewellery textiles and ceramics. We hold regular exhibitions at the shop and in other spaces in conjunction with outside groups.
