Beautiful hand paint tile

Product: Tile (20*20cm) 12
Posted By: Paal
These tiles are outstanding quality. The images on line do not do them justice. The background colouring is white and makes the tiles look sharper and cleaner. In these days of cheap mass produced tiles, these tiles are heaven. Don't think about it... buy them!



Finally found them!

Product: Tile (20*20cm) 12
Posted By: Jenni shields
After searching for ages through tile shops and being completely bored with cream tiles I started trawling the Internet. A few sites came but this one was the best. Easy to use and such wonderful beautiful things. The perfect tiles came up. Easy to order and quickly delivered to my door. Will be using the in my ensuite and will be back for more but different patterns for my other bathroom and kitchen. Great value and good quality.



Just beautiful!

Posted By: Lee
Beautiful cups, really nice to look at, great to drink out of, well made, just beautiful! Delivery was quick, they were well packaged, and worth every penny. Thank you!

"Nomadic Son is fantastic: Absolutely fabulous. Their service is excellent and the runner amazing. So good I had to buy another couple of rugs."       

Nomadic Son - kilims (Esther Stewart - Stylist, Lauren Bamford - Photographer)

“Last week I had an amazing experience at Nomadic Son, in Daylesford, that I’d like to let people know about..... 

A few weeks before I’d purchased a beautiful patchwork rug from them, made from hand woven, vintage pieces. It was in very pale shades of greys, creams, and off-whites – not the best choice for a rental property I know, but it was perfect on the grey limed floor in my country cottage.

Imagine my horror when my cleaner texted me to say the guests who’d just checked out had spilled red wine on my new rug, and the stains had completely dried! I thought the best course of action was to contact Nomadic Son as they may be able to refer me to a professional rug cleaner.  The owner said to bring the rug in.

When I arrived at Nomadic Son she was waiting with bowls and cleaning materials. She spent the next 3 days (her days off), cleaning the spots, waiting for them to dry, and then repeating this process, until none of the stains remained. And she wouldn’t accept a fee for this service! 

I can’t speak highly enough of her customer service. Well and truly over and above the call of duty. Way above my expectations. Not only was beauty restored to the rug but my spirits were revived. Thanks Christie!” - J - Daylesford.


"I recently purchased an 18 cm Kabartma plate from Nomadic Son and it is absolutely beautiful. The service I received was amazing, in fact the best service I have had from any online shop. I have since purchased two colorful ceramic sparrows and love them too. I will certainly be a returning customer."


"Just a quick note to say thank you so much for my rug. I love it and it looks absolutely beautiful in the room!"  - Kate James


"Just emailing to let you know the cushions I ordered from you arrived yesterday – beautiful beyond words!  The photos on your website are very accurate in terms of colour reproduction, however, no photo can convey the beauty of the natural texture of the weaving and the depth of colour in the dye.  I am delighted with my purchase and can hardly wait to take the drive to Daylesford and enjoy browsing in your shop."

"The original cuval cushion is just a beautiful addition to my home. The brocaded weave is intricate and the colours are still vibrant today

given the age of the item. The natural weave back adds to its rustic appeal. 

Great service I received my cushion within 2 days of my order. Can't wait to order more."      





"Absolutely fabulous service -so easy every step of the way.  I had been putting off getting a rug because I thought it would be too difficult and too expensive.  Kudos to you Nomadic Son for offereing such wonderful rugs at a reasonable price.   Love the underlay btw.  Highly recommended!"

"I purchased a Kilim off you today and just wanted to let you know that it is absolutely perfect! My husband loves it and it looks as though it was made especially for our entry.
Thank you so much, it was lovely to find your shop and all the beautiful Turkish pieces you stock.
Thank you again." J.Y 



“Thanks a lot for the wonderful service you provided re: the purchase and delivery of our patchwork kilim !

I really liked the warm and rich colouring of the different patterns but it totally did not suit the space for which I bought it so I nearly send it back, but for one try in another spot under the dining room table, being my last hope.
And to my big surprise, it looked great and seemed to have been made for it! It lifts up the whole area and the colours beautifully match the rest of the furniture.
Thanks again from a very happy customer!”
