The story of Nomadic State Of Mind

nomadic sandals australia Nomadic State of Mind, a grassroots company in handmade rope art sandals, came to into being in the late 90’s. The funds to start off this business adventure were saved by Chris who camped many summers along the Colorado River to work as a raft guide. And then at some point it was time to move on. The nomadic adventure started off in with a 1969 VW-van, travelling from festival to festival. The van served as home, office and workshop at the same time. Those were truly nomadic times!

Some years later, while travelling in Middle America, Chris was brought in contact with a small community in Nicaragua that was facing tough times as the local coffee plantation recently had been terminated causing massive unemployment. There and then the idea was born to teach this small community how to make the Nomadic State of Mind sandals and with that creating employment and income, having a lot of fun along the way!

Although it was a long and bumpy road, with perseverance and inspiration from lots of happy feet wandering the planet we have come to the point where we are now. From a van alongside the Colorado River to an international network of distributors that is helping Nomadic State of Mind to slowly but surely win peoples’ hearts all over the world. The production is still taking place in Nicaragua, at the place of the old coffee plantation.

Designing and developing the handmade sandals was a time consuming process, but through years of experience and extensive training our “sandal artists” managed to master the job perfectly. All people at Nomadic State of Mind are being paid a fair share and our dream is to continue to grow our business enabling us to create more employment and better circumstances for the often with poverty and high unemployment stricken local communities in Middle America.

Nomadic State of Mind puts a lot of focus on sustainability and environment in the production process. One of her major goals is to operate her business with virtually no waste at all. The production waste, scraps of rope, is reused to produce carpets, hammocks, handbags and other accessories. This cradle-to-cradle principle is being applied for about 85% already. This approach also secures employment and income for our employees outside the sandal season. Nomadic State of Mind is a small but flourishing company and will continue to design and deliver excellent quality for affordable prices, handmade rope art made for happy people. Many thanks for your support and enthusiasm throughout the years!
