As a 501(c)(3) non-profit organization, Francis + Benedict exists to empower and equip skilled Togolese seamstresses by providing them with dignified and sustainable employment. In addition, our profits are used to resource community leaders in Togo, enabling them to continue projects that benefit orphans, widows, and those suffering in poverty.
Our handmade clothing marries American style with West African wax print textiles in order to create fashion-forward apparel for the modern woman.
We aim to make a lasting global impact by using our love for people and fashion to change communities
… One outfit at a time.
Katie Walters is the founder + visionary behind Francis + Benedict. God ignited her heart for the women of Togo when she visited there in July of 2015. Francis + Benedict is the marriage of her love for well-made, fashion-forward clothing and seeing women worldwide excel at what God has called them to.
Francis and Benedict Avoyi are our partners on the ground in Togo, encouraging and equipping the seamstresses as well as navigating all overseas operations.
