Founded in 2016 by Rachelle Hruska MacPherson, Lingua Franca’s signature sweaters – each sustainably sourced and hand-embroidered in NYC 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 and Martha Stewart embraced the brand for their outspoken commitment to sustainable slow fashion, artisanship and giving back.

To date, the brand has raised over a million dollars for more than 200 charities. Since its inception, Lingua Franca has expanded to include ready-to-wear collections, which maintain their passion for ethically sourced, luxury textiles, and expand upon their well-known embroidery esthetic in new and playful ways.
