About

Inspired by cloud technology. We've created a modular system of bags and pouches to improve the way you move through your modern, active lifestyle.

Now you can enjoy optimal organization and better efficiency so you can focus on enjoying your experiences.

We have made it our mission to improve the way you move. In doing so, we've set a new standard for travel goods.  
Every NOM.AD bag features the FLO System. 
Comprised of a precisely designed network of patented, premium Swiss snaps. This is the key to our adaptable organization solutions for your daily life.

Introducing a better, more efficient way to move:

Designed and built to last you through all of life's journeys.  

Let's take a deeper look at what it can do...

The FLO Folio is your multi-functional laptop case, enhanced with our FLO System. 

It can be used on its own or slid into other bags you already have, making them better.

 The FLO Pouches are what makes the FLO System work.

Available in different sizes, colors, and materials, they all offer different options based on the things you need to carry.

1. Choose your bag.

3. Snap and go!

Design your bag for your needs of the moment. Snap on the pouches you want, tailored for the day head.

Versatility for your daily life. All of our pouches effortlessly snap into place from one bag to another, making everything perfectly interconnected. 

Save time and energy. With the FLO System, now you can adapt your bags to cater to your needs for the day ahead.

 Effortlessly adaptable bags. Designed by you. Moving with you.

The Mobility Ecosystem is a seamless, more personal carrying solution for your everyday life.

Quality matters. Everything we make is constructed from the finest, most premium materials to ensure a lightweight, durable and weatherproof final product. Classic materials accent modern textiles for a lifetime of luxury and style.

Responsibly sourced. We made every effort to minimize our carbon footprint when creating the Mobility Ecosystem. All the materials and hardware used have been locally and sustainably sourced in Europe, chosen for their quality, durability and aesthetics.

Handcrafted with care by people who love what they do. Design happens in its execution, so it was incredibly important to partner with a factory who shared our vision. The skilled artisans of Ubrique, Spain welcomed this opportunity. Nestled in the mountains of Andalusia, this beautiful pueblo blanco boasts a heritage of leather goods production that has endured for over 1,000 years—a fact the local community takes great pride in, and that attracts many of the most iconic European fashion brands as clients.

Collaboration was critical. Product development and ensuring quality control was a major priority. To make sure things were done right, founder Ryan Clott moved from NYC to Ubrique for the next two months —something unheard of by the atelier and people in town. Everyday, Ryan collaborated in person with the team in the workshop to perfect the products.

"The details are not the details. They make the design."—Charles Eames

Embracing this design master's philosophy, we left nothing to chance. Every element, every component, every aspect of the design was articulated—down the the millimeter. We are confident in our creations and stand by our products in our belief that they will truly help you move with meaning.

The nitty-gritty details.

Risks and challenges

Experience matters, so you can trust in us to see this through. Our team has extensive experience in designing, developing and manufacturing products — especially bags and cases.

Ryan, NOM.AD's founder, has led the design, development and manufacturing of several products for some of the biggest brands in the world.

Eric has experience running a home goods factory in Brazil for several years, so he knows the production and fulfillment process well.

Nick is a master of communication, so you can count on him to keep you informed through the entirety of the campaign and beyond.

Before we started the campaign, we circled back with all of our suppliers and connected with our manufacturer to get aligned and prepared. We have already established the supply chain and Ryan is ready to move back to Ubrique as soon as the campaign finishes.

Forecasted possibilities of delays in getting the materials, unsuspected issues in production, and any potential mishaps with shipping have all been accounted for. The shipping dates we have presented to you are conservative, and they are already projected to account for any unforeseen issues that may come up.

While we want to deliver your rewards as soon as possible, we also must make sure that they meet our standards of exceptionally high quality. We will move as fast as we can, as best as we can. Our top priority will be to deliver you a quality NOM.AD product.

"Design happens in the execution." We won't be resting on our laurels after a successful campaign. We know that we still have more work to do, and we are happy and excited to do it. :)
