We visited Cairo last year and did our research. We skipped the souk and went to the Nomad hotel location. We love all the local handmade goods we bought, prices marked and fair. We were super happy we made our driver track down this place. Don't miss it.

Skip Khan Al-Khalili, go here for your presents. Located in a somewhat obscure location in Zamalek (I did not visit the hotel location). Wonderful proprietor. Items for sale from North Africa, not China. Goods appeared well made and were visually pleasing. Plagiarized from floramalone's 2012 review (still completely valid in my opinion): Upstairs in a dusty 19th century building you... More

Nomad is a great place to shop for gifts, each piece uniquely blends bedouin/ethnic crafts with contemporary style. I love the colors, artistic display of the wall hangings and shawls, and the comfortable, happy vibe. You will find so many things to choose from; home accessories such as coasters, carpets, a vast variety of silver jewelry and fashion jewelry, printed... More

"I was very lucky when I found the Normad Gallery 6 years ago, when I was staying at the Marriott hotel in Egypt. The shop is on the ground floor at the hotel and the place offers beautiful items you rarely find other places in Egypt. The items were exquisite, either it were carpets, silver items, including vintage pieces, or... More

I discovered the tiny Nomad shop at the Cairo Marriott Zamalek Hotel about 15 years ago. A wonderful place for small gifts and a cross section of the best of Egyptian crafts, mixed with some beautiful old Egyptian silver. I then discovered the main Nomad Cairo shop, a 10 minute walk along some very precarious pavements and some rather dangerous... More

Found the Marriott branch the last day of my trip and was amazed at the quality the fact that prices were marked on everything. Didn't see anything made in China-----and all items were well made and aesthetically pleasing. Had bought some similar scarfs (not as fine quality) in a bazarr and a Bedouin rug in a carpet shop for the... More

I discovered Nomad during my first trip to Cairo some years ago. As a single (blonde) business traveller I find it can be stressful to wander alone in Cairo and in particular in the bazaar areas. I also hate to haggle but do want to pay a fair price. Nomad was a great discovery - beautiful and really original clothing,... More
