Open Arms Partner Miranda Bennett Launches Storefront

Open Arms was proud to support long-time partner Miranda Bennett Studios as they prepared to launch their first storefront just before the holidays. By the end of the year, Open Arms had increased production for Miranda Bennett to about 23 different designs per week, including expanding from one-size to varying sizes. The partnership now creates professional sewing jobs for 3 full-time refugee seamstresses, as well as having lead to a relationship with New Leaf Farm to grow dye plants. To support this amazing designer, check out her website or stop by the new shop: 1211 East 11th Street.
