I just wanted to pop in to give you a quick update during these uncertain days.
We could have never imagined launching our new and largest collection to date during the times we find ourselves in as a global community. But, we want to thank you all for your amazing support on our launch day - it means so much to the women in Togo to know they are supported during unstable times.
As a sisterhood we wanted to be sure to keep you updated. One of the blessings we've seen through you since 2015 is the continued growth of Francis + Benedict. During this growth as a family, we have begun renovations on our new shop building in Togo. However, while this is such a big and exciting step in Francis + Benedict's journey, it also means that our dedicated seamstresses are still working in Francis and Benedict's home (if you've just started following along with us, Francis and Benedict are more than just our namesake; they are 2 of our founders and our partners on the ground in Togo, encouraging and equipping our seamstresses). With all of that said, we wanted to let you, our sisterhood, know they are all safe and so incredibly thankful that your purchases are helping them remain working through the Corona global crisis.
Thank you for your continued support of Francis + Benedict and for doing your part to help provide for our amazing seamstresses. If you haven't snagged your fave skirt pattern from the Flora Collection, you can do so here. If you've already purchased a skirt from the Flora Collection, but would like to continue to support our seamstresses through a direct financial donation, you can do so here.
We hope you're finding joy and peace in the midst of the chaos.
