Apolis: Nomad Market is a traveling installation featuring Apolis’ collection, stories & films. The goal of our Nomad Market is to bring the inspiring talents & stories of our global artisans to a local marketplace. Since October 2012, Nomad Market has passed through the local neighborhoods of: Steven Alan (Chelsea, NY), Hickoree’s (Brooklyn, NY), Need Supply (Richmond, VA), Tenet (Southampton, NY), Journal Standard (Shibuya-ku, Japan), Willy's (Detroit, MI), Glasswing Shop (Seattle, WA), Voyager (San Francisco, CA), Welcome Stranger (Berkley, CA), STAG Provisions (Venice, CA), and Nordstrom (Santa Barbara, CA). We have been so thankful for the global response to Nomad Market and all the new friends we have met along the way! In an effort to visit more neighborhoods this year we are keeping the current installation inside Alchemy Works in Newport Beach and our second domestic Nomad Market is currently inside Brooklyn's Wythe Hotel.
Two years after opening Apolis: Nomad Market inside Steven Alan's Chelsea Annex, we're pleased to return to the east coast. On May 18th we hosted an opening reception of Brooklyn's Apolis: Nomad Market with our exclusive Apolis + Wythe Brooklyn Market Bag, online and available at Wythe Hotel. The Brooklyn market bag, along with 4 other new local bags - only available online (Carroll Gardens, Fort Greene, Williamsburg, Dumbo) are a few of our new 200+ City Series market bags, connecting regional retailers with our global advocacy work and helping to create consistent employment for the artisans that handcraft the market bags in rural Bangladesh.
We shared our twelfth Nomad Market gathering with over 150 guests for a private reception hosted by Apolis Creative Director, Raan Parton. We would like to thank the Wythe team for their hard work and also all of our friends and Apolis Nomads who joined us in Brooklyn for the opening. The Nomad Market will remain in Brooklyn tentatively through August 2016. Keep your eyes peeled for the Nomad Market in a neighborhood near you.
Wythe Hotel is located at 80 Wythe Ave New York, NY 11211. Nomad Market is open inside the hotel seven days a week, 10AM–8PM
