Our Story



Travel Well, Do No Harm

David Keys and Sarah Beaudette created Nomadica to meet two urgent needs: to outfit the growing community of world travelers with light and durable gear, and to offer it from companies committed to making a positive social and environmental impact on the world.

It’s not easy to separate ethical companies from harmful ones. For too long, we as consumers have accepted a lack of transparency in the supply chain of the products we buy. This misdirection on the part of unethical companies means that your hard-earned dollars directly contribute to poverty, death, and the degradation of your planet unless you know who you’re buying from. We want transparency, and we want to make it easier for you to get it. We select each featured company using a rigorous set of criteria that includes labor conditions, carbon emissions, and the environment. Learn more about our selection process. 

David and Sarah met in 2009, and have been expats since 2012. In 2015, they became a full-time nomadic family. They've learned a lot about what is needed on the road, and which designs and materials work best.

We’re excited to share with you the products we’ve hand picked for durability, weight, and design.
