Learn more about Michigan Mittens
It all began as a road-trip idea when Connie Hahne and her husband Erich were making the 5-hour drive home from their cabin in Michigan’s Upper Peninsula. By the time they were home they had a plan to represent the “Mitten State” – Michigan’s Upper Peninsula on one hand and the Lower Peninsula on the other.
While travelling over the Mackinac Bridge, Erich penned the slogan “Always have a MAP on Hand”!
They partnered with Earth 2 Earth, a Screen Print & Embroidery shop located in Downtown Pontiac. Where owners Lisa Angelilli & Peter Boyer. Both talented artists and successful business owners for more than 20 years, created the maps that are on the mittens and have helped reinvent and expand on Connie’s idea!
Shop for yourself, friends, family – including children and even Michigan Mittens for infants. You will find Michigan Mittens at around the state and Michigan Mittens (and so many more items) can be purchased online too!
