The Kate Wrislet - Vintage
"For those of you familiar with our blogs, you already know my older sister, Kate. Due to the childhood we lived through, we all had to grow up fast and take on atypical responsibilities for our ages. Kate took the brunt of this as the oldest and has always been my fiercest protector in this world. She continues to be selfless in her devotion to helping those around her, and she uses her life experience in the most positive way working in the mental health field as a Director at The Royal Hospital in Ottawa." Jennifer, Founder of MARNIE & MICHAEL

The story behind the wristlet: "With our 2022 LINE, we intentionally set out to design smaller pieces for everyday use and the wristlet style was one of the top requests from our customers. Historically for women, the purse was always political, reflecting economics and gender roles. Up until the eighteenth century, small purses were used to only hold money and were often found dangling from a belt. The fashionable wide hooped skirts of the time allowed for pockets for other things. Fast forward to today and tiny purses make a fashion statement! They quietly let others know you’re a low-maintenance personality and enjoy the minimalist lifestyle.”
