Nouvelle Nomad Bridget John


I'm Bridget - in the world somewhere between Melbourne and Marrakech. And I'm here to help find you your unicorn rug.

Nouvelle Nomad is a collection of one of a kind vintage rugs and textiles, sourced on travels and adventures in magical Morocco. Specialising in vintage, the hard to find and unique, and re-homing beautiful treasures that already exist in the world rather than manufacturing more.

Each piece is a one of a kind artwork hand woven by the women and the tribes of the Atlas Mountains of Morocco, full of history and character, and made to last a lifetime.

I work with a range of local family businesses, professional rug hunters and carpet traders to source the collection from the mountains, the carpet auctions and the souks of Morocco, carefully selecting each and every piece with the modern Australian home and aesthetic in mind.

All items are hand washed and repaired in traditional methods by local artisans before being shipped to new homes around the world.

In Australia, the Melbourne based collection is available to view at the Mark Tuckey showroom at 4 Anderson Rd Thornbury. Open Tuesday to Saturday.

And also frequently hold various pop up events that we announce via the mailing list.

Many more pieces not shown on the site are available to be shipped direct from Morocco, with sourcing options available. Just drop me a line to let me know what you're looking for!

I'd love to hear from you at any time with questions about any of our treasures, sourcing services for your home, project or event - or if you're passing through the same part of the world as me.

Thanks for coming on the journey, it's great to have you along for the ride!

x Bridget
