Makers Alongside: Kate Jennings // NA NIN

Makers Alongside


Kate Jennings is one of those people you immediately want to spend more time with when you meet her. She is a kindred spirit, and we could not be more thrilled that she joined us again for Makers Alongside. Her custom fragrances are incredible, and we are honored to be the exclusive sellers of Prairie Fire.

Kate started a vintage clothing line in 2009, Na Nin Vintage. Na Nin means “I am” in Korean, and Kate came up with her brand name after her trip to South Korea. Kate began blending essential oils in 2013, has been selling fragrances since January 2014, and began selling candles in 2015. “My fragrances are inspired by a feeling or vision you have when listening to a certain song,” Kate says, and she means it. When Kate sent the first samples for Prairie Fire to us, she included a playlist for us to listen to while we smelled all our options. Her process is informed by music, travel, her friends and family, and random acts of kindness – like the sweet emails of encouragement she is always sending our way.

You can find Kate on Instagram @shopnanin and on Pinterest @katejennings, and if you happen to find yourself in Richmond, VA you can visit her at one of her two brick-and-mortar shops.  Shop her fragrances and more online at
