Craved in Canada
Kathmandu founder and owner of design store Nood, or “New Objects of Desire”, Jan Cameron has opened four stores in British Columbia. Nood carries a range of household and personal products, including designer furniture lines, ceramics, gifts and gadgets, luggage and home textiles. Tasmania-based Cameron does not give interviews and goes out of her way to keep a low profile. She’s well known for her best-selling lines of outdoor equipment and clothing under the Kathmandu brand and donated to various charitable causes. Cameron sold Kathmandu in 2006 to Goldman Sachs J B Were and Quadrant Private Equity. She has been reported as New Zealand’s wealthiest woman.
