Nomads News Spring 2024

Dear Friends, for this edition we invited Gavin Strachan, textile expert and editor of the Oxford Asian Textile Group’s journal, Asian Textiles, to share his experience on Rufus Reade’s October 2023 Turkish tour. I hope you will enjoy his erudite and witty narrative. Perhaps it will inspire you to travel there!

Our great friends from The African Fabric Shop, explorers of the African textile world for nearly 40 years, will exhibit this April at The Nomads Tent. Through their workshops, website and shop, their enormous enthusiasm and thoughtful engagement with textile producers across Africa, Magie Relph and Bob Irwin offer us an exemplary model of how people should trade. Find Bob’s article The Accidental Business on the back page.
