Michigan Maker: Jenna Kator

Posted by Nicole Doud on

When Little Luxuries’ began, one of our first vendors was Jenna Kator Handbags who started in 2008, the same year as Little Luxuries’! 

In 2008 during the economic downturn, Jenna Kator took the opportunity to pursue her lifelong dream of becoming an entrepreneur and started marketing her vegan handbags at affordable prices, to give women a little pep in their step, while helping them save money.

Jenna Kator’s roots are here in the great state of Michigan. She pays tribute to the state in every bag and wristlet by naming them after different Michigan cities or landmarks.

The new fall collection has been SO popular! The new handbags include The Flint Handbag + The Detroit Handbag.

The Flint Handbag: 

The Flint water crisis began in 2014 when the city began taking water from the Flint River without treating it properly. Tens of thousands of Flint residents were exposed to dangerous levels of lead.

Be a forward-thinker by withstanding all obstacles with the Flint Handbag.

We love the shape of the Flint Handbag! The exterior pockets either have snaps or zips, to keep your items secure. The attachable crossbody strap is a nice touch for when you want to change it up from the regular shoulder strap. 

The Detroit Handbag: 

For nearly 60 years, projects have failed promises of urban revival including years of hopeless headlines. Today, ongoing investment and construction symbolize a new era in Detroit, Michigan.

Become immersed with the rise of a new era feeling while carrying the Detroit Handbag. 

The Detroit Handbag is perfect for all your day’s adventures! The interior and exterior pockets help to keep you organized on your day out! The optional crossbody strap make it a bag that can transition easily from day to night use! 

We will always love Jenna Kator’s Handbags and having them available in the shop for you! Head to the website here to see what new handbag you need for fall: https://littleluxuriesofmackinac.com/collections/jenna-kator-handbags

  • Hi. The water crisis in Flint is a big part of history. I am a collector of history. I want that bag.
