Hello and thank you so much for wanting to know more about this brand, the story behind it, and the family it impacts.
I am Jenni Robins, maker and creator of Kate + Norah Co. I am a wife, mother, teacher and maker. I have always loved to make things, a simple act that brings such satisfaction, and when my girls were born nothing could have been more true. I made a lot of things for Emily Katherine but when Isabelle Norah arrived (now you know where the name comes from) I began making with the intention of bringing my girls together to help grow their sisterly bond.
I wanted a tent that was ecoconsious, minimal, and of heirloom quality. Since I couldn't find what I wanted, I made it instead. That lead to pillows, tote bags, catch alls and the rest is history.
Being a maker is never easy, I do every part of running this small handmade project. This website, all social media and everything I offer for sale, I make in my home studio with gratitude. Making for you is always something I am deeply grateful for. Every purchase you make impacts my family directly, making it a little easier for me to stay home with them and continue to put them first. All mud cloth purchases also directly impact the makers and their communities where we get our fabric from, not to mention all the Canadian suppliers we get our wood, wood beads, ceramics, leather, and cotton fabric from. Shopping local and small may seem small, but the impacts are big.
