“Women Owned Business”

March 9, 2012

By Jacalyn Bennett

When I started Bennett and Company in 1989, it was with a vision to understand and fulfill the needs of a woman’s demanding lifestyle through the design and manufacture of beautiful, unique, and affordable lingerie, which is nourishing to the soul.  I built Bennett and Company with a corporate philosophy that embraces ecology, human rights, and social responsibly.

Teaching a woman the skill of sewing helps her to be a contributor and participate in the sustainability of supporting her family as well as a role model in her community.  Teaching a woman the craft of operating a sewing machine is likened to giving a man a fishing rod, both parties can develop their own equal respect and dignity which becomes the heart of any thriving and resilient community.  I also wanted to create a platform for all of my team members to discover who they are in the world and how their individual creative contribution plays an imperative part in our company’s success thus creating a positive ripple effect in the world around us.

In May 2010, the Women’s Business Enterprise National Council in partnership with the Center for Women and Enterprise recognized Jacalyn E.S. Bennett and Company as a Women’s Business Enterprise and awarded them with national certification.
