About Namakan Goods

Greetings from Minnesota!

Maggie Davis - Molly Mogren Katt - Namakan Goods Co-Founders

As born and bred Minnesotans, we know that with the right gear, there’s no such thing as too cold. 

However, we’re often faced with the choice of looking great and freezing, or staying warm in frumpy gear. Namakan bridges the gap between winter style and comfort, from the head down. 

In the winter of 2014, Maggie Davis stood at a St. Paul, Minnesota bus stop, freezing her butt off. The previous day, she’d worn a parka with faux fur trim on the hood. But on this day, she wore a coat without faux fur trim. She noticed that she was so much warmer with the fur. Her analytical brain started working on a way to transfer her faux fur ruff from one coat to another.

As it turned out, you can’t move most fur trim from one coat to another. They either zip or snap on to the coat they came with. A one trick pony! That’s why Maggie invented Namakan’s faux fur ruff. Using patent-pending design, this new ruff attaches to any hood, collar, jacket or sweater with super-strong magnets.

Maggie teamed up with friend Molly Mogren Katt to build the Namakan brand. The duo, who met at the University of Wisconsin (go Bucky!), are complete opposites-- but their skillsets are perfect compliments for running this business. Their friends refer to them as “the unibrain" as they are constantly thinking, saying and doing the same things at the same time, even when they're not together.⁠ 

 At Namakan, we love winter. With our products, you’ll love it, too.
