Kindness Inspires Creativity
By Jacalyn Bennett
The most important aspect of being an inspired lingerie designer is in the knowing that your heart’s creative intention is to accomplish beauty for the highest good of all beings.
I set out to build factories where setting the highest working standards for our sewers and factory workers was at the forefront of my motivation as a lingerie designer.
As lingerie is the closet garment next to our heart, it should be made with the highest core intention of love and kindness.
Creating a beautiful work atmosphere that pays forward positive energy is the heart at Bennett and Company. By creating an encouraging growth environment, others have had the opportunity to succeed and pursue satisfying careers.
There were so many people I encountered along my journey that allowed me opportunities for growth that I would not have had otherwise. It is because of these gifts that I have a deep love and gratitude for the process of witnessing young people blossom into beautiful beings as a result of the growth experiences they are given. It is also the propelling reason why I choose to open my own factory and design house.
True inspiration comes from giving others opportunity. It is such a satisfying way of life – to be able to create opportunity – but I would not be such in a position if it hadn’t been for the mentors I had the good fortune to meet along the way. I have only tried to replicate what I have been taught in the hope that the circle of loving kindness continues.
stands for all things,
even for those things that don’t flower,
for everything flowers, from within, of self-blessing;
though sometimes it is necessary
to reteach a thing its loveliness,
to put a hand on its brow
of the flower
and retell it in words and in touch
it is lovely
until it flowers again from within, of self-blessing”
