The Kodak Ensemble, introduced in 1929, was a Kodak Petite camera packaged in an attractive suede-covered strap-style hard case, with a mirror, matching lipstick, powder compact with rouge, and change pocket. When released, it was announced as "A dainty Kodak—a handy vanity, both in a soft suede case." It was marketed for the holidays as the "gift for the searcher who is looking for something a little different, something novel, but thoroughly practical."

The Petite used 127 roll film to produce 1⅝ x 2½-inch images. It came in three colors―beige, green, and rose―and retailed at $15 for the outfit. The cosmetics were supplied by The House of Tre Jur, a popular cosmetics brand in the United States from the 1920s through 1940s. These cosmetic compacts were famous for their Art Deco styling.
