  • This store is awesome!! There is jewelry, scarves, home decor, clothing, small gifts, you name it! I visited this store when I was in Cairo for a family friend's wedding. A small group of us stopped in and loved it so much we came back a few days later with the rest of our group. The owner was very kind and knowledgeable on the merchandise and provided detail on the origin. I love that this place is fair trade. If you are traveling though Egypt this is a MUST SEE!
  • Absolutely beautiful artisan store! The gentlemen who greeted us and assisted us, even offered us complimentary tea! They were extremely friendly and so helpful :) can't recommend enough for good quality, great service and excellent prices! We will be back here ASAP!!
  • Excellent place! Lots of great variety of silver collection! Beautiful design and most importantly, they can make special and customized design for you. Super special place. :-))
  • I never purchased a gift on my own. However, with this store, I found the whole process smooth and simple. Thank you, developers, for such a lovely platform.
  • I am so grateful to the internet for letting me know about this amazing store: it truly was my dream of what I'd hoped to find (and bring home) from our once-in-a-lifetime adventure in Egypt. I love vintage, unique textiles and handicrafts, and while I was happy to purchase the inexpensive scarab bracelets / necklaces by the handful from the vendors outside the temples (and as a Special Needs mama I was especially happy to purchase from those who have disabilities), my dream had been ... more. And this shop was so much more. Truly, the only thing preventing me from purchasing more was that I just did not want to also purchase a large suitcase! (Wish I had, though ....) Nomad actually generously gave me two smaller bags (a small sport duffel and a backpack) in which I could carry my purchases. (Let's just say I made use of every spare nook and cranny, rolling things to put inside shoes -- you know the drill!) I had dreamed of what our guide called "camel clothes": those colorful, gorgeous woven saddles and pompoms ... and Nomad had them! Yummy. Rugs rugs rugs, oodles of scrummy hand loomed / hand embroidered shawls + scarves, vintage, unique jewelry, unique trinkets from from the Siwa people, terrific little ceramic cups (they were sooo interesting and now that I'm back in the US I'm sorry I didn't purchase any, really sorry), and on and on. I am telling you this store is a DREAM. A dream. The prices were very fair and, based on my shopping throughout the country, totally on-point. Before visiting the store I'd thought things might be slightly more expensive, but they were not. At all. And I have to say, the people who work in this shop could not have been kinder, more helpful, more patient: I heard fluent Arabic and English. They were lovely as could be to me, and when I explained why I couldn't stay long (my child is in a w/c and, because to get to the old-fashioned elevator you have to come up a half-flight of stairs) they immediately offered to lift him in w/c up the stairs -- so kind. So kind. I visited Nomad on my final day in Cairo and it truly was the best end to our two weeks in this amazing country. Wonderful. I cannot recommend more highly this treasure of a store.
