Nomada is an accessories brand created by Sanaa Ruia and Divya Batra. The brand is heavily inspired by nature, travel and various cultures of the world. The name Nomada itself is derived from the word Nomads, signifying our love of exploration. Given the immense talent available in our country, Nomada uses brilliant hand embroiderers to create unique and contemporary surface textures that are international in their appeal and yet retain traditional Indian techniques.

With a strong focus on design, keen sense of detail and high quality raw materials our products are a favourite with the discerning yet experimental woman of fashion.

At Nomada we also work with corporates to create gifting solutions for their clients. From Estee Lauder make up brands to real estate companies to private weddings. We have a worked with a large spectrum of clients to custom make something special each time. We also specialise in embroideries and create pieces in collaborations with international brands, such as Juicy Couture (UK). At Nomada we believe in giving back. We have worked with groups of under privileged women, donating sewing machines, hosting embroidery workshops and teaching basic stitching skills. Our dust covers and packaging are done by the same group of women now. As a primarily women led organisation we think it’s essential to support the financial upliftment of other women.
