Where are we and what are we all about?
The Nomads Tent is down towards the end of the cobbles of St Leonard’s Lane, as you walk towards Edinburgh’s majestic Salisbury Crags, right next to Holyrood Distillery. We have been trading since 1982 and in this warehouse since 1991. We sell rugs, furniture, pottery, jewellery and textiles. We present exhibitions, talks and a fringe show. All the goods on offer are picked up in the bazaars of Persia, India, Afghanistan, Turkey and points East. We like the dictum of William Morris: ‘Have nothing in your house that you do not know to be useful, or believe to be beautiful’. We would add ‘and ethical‘! Since opening in 1982, we maintain that our goods are no less important than the people and cultures they come from. We have a policy of trading fairly with our suppliers, trusting to the best in human nature and creativity.
