Nomadic State of Mind, a grassroots-style handmade sandal and accessories company founded by Chris Anderson, who began its voyage in the late 90’s. In the early years Chris ran the business out of a 1969 VW bus, which also served as Chris’ summer home (what nature loving, outdoor sports enthusiast, raft guide with a music guided-soul didn’t spend some time in a VW bus?). Since those days philosophy of the company has stayed consistent– If it is done right in the beginning, it will last a long time. Today the team features Chris, Entropy Engineer; Dave (Chris’ Dad), Shipping Guru and Disciple of the NY Garment Industry; Jeff-fell off the bus at Bonnarro and landed to be the National Sales Manager; Kelly-packing master and Chris’ sister; Shea, a budding flower from Azaela Fest, now project manager and make up entrepreneur. Marissa, fashion model and customer service expert; and most importantly team of 54 rope artisans, and distributors around the globe.
At the turn of the century (the last one), Chris was introduced to a small community in Nicaragua that had been through some tough times and was in need of reliable income. He taught a small group how to make sandals, believing in fair trade, ethical practices, and sticking to our philosophy– Do it right. In the beginning. The road navigating the “Wild West” of Nicaragua was long and bumpy with scattered thunderstorms and occasional rainbows. However with perseverance and inspiration from lots of happy feet wandering the planet, we have found a home there for over a decade. So from a van by the river, to international availability and distribution (we even opened a Nomadic State of Mind store in the country of Cyprus) we have continued to grow and “do it right”. Occasionally we let our imaginations take over which has helped lead to an increased product line with the addition of various forms of rope art using sandal scraps, from handbags to water bottle carriers, to rugs and more.
Apparel line uses organic cotton and recycled fabrics and the prints are inspired by Chris’ travel and photography over the years. The business is built from the heart and that’s apparent in the structure of the company as well. The company began it’s roots setting up sandal shops at outdoor music festivals throughout the country. Though the team and the company have grown, festivals are still a favorite activity for Chris and the crew and that’s where he can be found through much of the summer. Nomadic State of Mind is a growing team and continues to design and build superb quality, affordably priced, rope ar t sandals. Made from real hands for real feet. Peace, Love!
