My amazingly stylish Nana ‘Marjorie Florence Wright’ is the key inspiration behind the mikat label. From an early age I aspired to be just like my glamorous Nana one day! I spent many hours playing in her amazing wardrobes (yes that’s plural, not to mention the additional two garden sheds outside full of her clothing and accessories). Marjorie truly was the hippest and most stylish Nana in the world, teaching me that statement accessories are key, not to be afraid to be different, wear bold colour, jewellery is everything, quality leather and that ‘you make money to spend money because you can’t take it when you’re gone’. She was the lady in electric blue when everyone else was wearing black. Until recently she still sat up in the nursing home draped in amazing jewellery from her travels across the globe, leopard print fur and vintage red wayfarers. My love of fashion and accessories began with her and for that I am eternally grateful!

Welcome to my mikat world, a sneak peek into the ultimate bohemian luxe label for handmade leather handbags, shoes, jackets and wallets.
mikat is a blend of the Italian word ‘Mi’ meaning me and my name Katrina Wright. I grew up on the picturesque New South Wales Central Coast and spent my childhood summers playing at the beach and in my amazingly stylish Nana’s wardrobe. It’s fair to say that it was here that my love affair with fashion accessories began.
I’ve worked in the fashion industry for several years and have travelled extensively across the globe. My passion for detail, combined with a love of fashion, music, colour, texture and exploring exotic destinations, is reflected in my high quality and unique luxe designs.
My best friend and favourite english staffy ‘Bob’ accompanies me to mikat HQ each day and always has the final say when it comes to my designs. I have found the perfect balance of work and play now dividing my time between Melbourne and Asia.
My team and I invite you to dream, explore, be your own free spirit and join us on our journey to dominate the fashion accessories world!
