If you’ve stepped into Barre Nation, you are sure to have seen some beautiful skirts hanging from our racks. These skirts are more than beautiful. Francis + Benedict exists to empower and equip skilled Togolese seamstresses by providing them with dignified and sustainable employment. In addition, their profits are used to resource community leaders in Togo, enabling them to continue projects that benefit orphans, widows, and those suffering in poverty.
F+B’s handmade clothing marries American style with West African wax print textiles in order to create fashion-forward apparel for the modern woman.
Their aim is to make a lasting global impact by using a love for people and fashion to change communities… One outfit at a time. All of the skirts you see in the studio are samples for fitting purposes. If you want to purchase your very own F+B skirt, you can do so at our website: https://francisandbenedict.com/barrenation
