Lingua Franca

ApparelEco-LuxuryFair Trade

Lingua Franca started as a small line of sustainably-sourced, fair trade luxury cashmere sweaters, all hand-stitched by women in NYC. Today, we have expanded to include several categories of hand embroidered items for you to customize as well as seasonal ready-to-wear collections, several accessories, and even wallpaper!

Our sustainably sourced and hand-embroidered in NYC sweaters, with thought-provoking and culturally resonant phrases, quickly cultivated a strong following among leaders in the fields of entertainment, art, and politics. Luminaries including Jane Fonda, Oprah Winfrey, Meryl Streep, Joan Didion, Huma Abedin, Ai Weiwei, Mindy Kaling, Martha Stewart and many more have embraced our brand organically for our outspoken commitment to sustainable slow fashion, artisanship and giving back.
