American entrepreneur Rachelle Hruska MacPherson founded Lingua Franca to celebrate Hip Hop lyrics as the common language of our time. Like The Fold owner Natalie, Rachelle is a fellow Nebraskan and graduate of Creighton University, and so the brand holds a special place in our hearts. Each cashmere sweater is hand-embroidered with an iconic line for a unique statement. We are equally fond of the original phrase, Original Gansta, and phrases that are particularly significant today, like The Future is Female. Make a statement and feel empowered in Lingua Franca.
