A passion for sustainable luxury.
Anneke created the company in 2004, and since then has been determined to put the Escape Nomade brand on the map of the international new sustainable luxury goods market. In order to reach that goal, she decided not to compete with the old world luxury brands, but to jump ship and actively work to create the new world of simplistic, designer luxury.
In the 1980’s, her New York based nonprofit, East Meets West, wrote the guidelines for Design for the Environment, later successfully adapted by the Environmental Protection Agency, AT&T, and IBM. Upon applying the DFE principles, these organizations were able to save millions of dollars in the first year alone.
For Anneke, the reason to design and manufacture tents is to create a sustainable, elegant, affordable, safe and self-sufficient mobile living space in nature, delivered by knowledgeable people and their enthusiastic family members for a fair profit to all stakeholders.
The entire Escape Nomade team is able to express their own creativity with a common vision. This is the spirit in which our company came to life and the motivation for our constant creation and refinement.
