Jean Franklin: The celebration of a loving partnership and early 70’s style.
Jean Franklin’s house is quaint and modest, sporting a weathered look not out of neglect, but out of love for the stories an experienced and wisdom-filled space can hold. A mix of 70’s blues and Americana vinyls sit in the corner by the record player while the smell of morning coffee wafts through the air. Sunlight filters through houseplants warming the skin of every visitor who finds themselves here. Velvet cushions invite you to dream and stay awhile. Old books stacked around the room beckon you to flip through their well-worn pages and ground you into action — a space to learn and reconnect with lessons from those before us. This is a home of admiration for timeless acts of empowerment and steadfast care for the Earth.
Jean Franklin can be found in every women’s march, in the belief of “community over competition”, in every vintage piece of clothing, every sustainable action, a newly planted tree, an old roll of film and an act of empowerment. She is the embodiment of strength, femininity and freedom — a wildflower in a sun coated meadow.
Jean Franklin the brand shows up through authentic sustainable practices, versatile and functional products, high quality and a fit that supports real women of all body types. When it comes to personal style you don’t compromise and neither do we.
Our Jean Franklin team is an integral part of creating a brighter, more supported world and treating all of our teammates with the respect they deserve is a non-negotiable for us. We strive to rebuild job opportunities and support local women-run businesses which is why we work with a small team out of Los Angeles. We believe in fair work wages, safe and welcoming environments, and a whole lot of love. With each Jean Franklin piece you buy, you support some seriously rad women who stitch each garment with their own story.
