Live your radiance

Modern, Minimal & Sustainable ~ Reflecting The Soulful Way You Live

Do you live your life with style?
Is your life active and full of radiant vibrance?
Do you care for this beautiful planet we live on and the people who you share it with?



You are being the best you everyday and Zen Nomad wants to support you in that. 
It is our goal to design pieces that blend into your everyday life, and you'll soon see (and feel!) that our pieces are simply so luxurious and so comfortable, that you will wear them all the time. You will find them effortless to wear.  
"Grace Happens: 
That's what I feel like when I'm in this piece
(& many others in the Zen Nomad family).
Graceful. Kind. 
And like my body is honored. "
For us, luxury and sustainability coexist. You consider your choices in life and we consider each and every choice we make in designing Zen Nomad.  We design and manufacture locally, in Toronto. We're committed to using sustainably sourced, high quality fabrics with low impact dyes and our limited edition natural dyed items are hand dyed with plants we have often harvested ourselves. Every creation is made to help you move through your day with ease, comfort and style. Our designs are meant to be layered, and worn wherever, whenever. 



Our philosophy is: Peace in our bodies, peace in our minds, peace in our spirits.


Meet Sonja den Elzen the creator and founder:

Drawing inspiration from nature and travel.

After 18 years in the fashion industry, in 2012 Sonja went through a life transformation immersing herself in the world of wellness, and was looking for stylish and ethical clothing to match her yoga lifestyle. Using her fashion know-how, she developed Zen Nomad, an ethical, luxury meets comfort, apparel line.  

Loving to live in sync with the elements, Sonja can often found wandering (when she able to escape the city) in the forest, mountains or by the ocean taking in the sights, sounds and atmosphere. To cultivate this connection with nature brings balance into her everyday life and nurtures a deep respect for all that nature gifts us with. She feels passionate about finding ways to move in a co creative relationship with all life. 

This passion is a driving force behind Zen Nomad and she feels that clothing should be mindfully made, considering the planet, the people who make the garments and the ones who wear them. So ethical, sweatshop free manufacturing is a vital part of the business as is beautifully fitting garments that are designed to love the body they are on.

Sonja is also a yoga and meditation instructor and zen shiatsu practitioner, modalities embodying a connected, holistic lifestyle.  Through her retreats and workshops, she uses her peaceful, integrative approach to life to create experiences that nurture self-empowered wellness.
