About Nomadic Citizen
Nomadic Citizen is an ethically produced brand born out of a love for travel, indigenous cultures, textiles,
handmade goods, and doing good.
Built on fair trade principles, we seek out and collaborate with talented artisans in faraway and hard to reach places to create small curated collections of beautiful, handmade textiles and accessories for you and your home. Created using traditional techniques, our products reflect the culture they come from, empower the artisans who make them, and preserve the techniques they're made of.
With a strong belief that we should surround ourselves with items of meaning, quality, and reflective of our journey (both realized and unrealized), Nomadic Citizen provides a unique alternative for those who are filled with wanderlust an appreciation of culturally diverse and sustainably made goods. Our products honour the culture and traditions they're made in while embracing a modern aesthetic.
We invite you to wander through our products immerse yourself in their stories, and make them a part of your own.
Born and raised in Toronto, Kisha grew up with a sincere interest in different
cultures and an intense case of wanderlust. After receiving her post secondary
education in Public Relations, and spending a few years working in the entertainment
industry, in 2011 Kisha decided to shift gears and do something she'd always
dreamed of doing. Fuelled by a desire to explore and do something meaningful,
Kisha headed to New Delhi, India to volunteer for 10 months. It was there a love
of handmade textiles and traditional crafting techniques blossomed. With the desire
to do work that made a difference combined with passions and interests old and new,
the idea for what would become Nomadic Citizen began to slowly take shape and was
finally launched in 2016.
Kisha currently lives in her hometown of Toronto and considers herself an imperfect
perfectionist and fearful dream chaser kept sane by an 8lb bichon frise/toy poodle named
Howard. An indulger of bad reality TV with a perpetual craving for noodles, she continues
to work in Communications by day but remains textile-obsessed, and day dreaming of
faraway places, at all other times.
