Growing faith clothing company Faithful faith clothing has just raised $3.5 million to expand its online store.
The company says it’s the first in the country to do so, and it’s been a hit with women.
The goal is to help women who are struggling to find a job and a home.
“I think the most important thing to us is to be able to help the women who need it,” Faithful founder, Lila S. Johnson, told CBC News.
The clothing is made by the nonprofit Women in Faith Clothing, which has also created a video of women wearing the clothes.
“We’ve got a very diverse group of women who have a lot of questions that we’re trying to address, and I think the videos that we’ve produced really speak to that,” Johnson said.
The company is working with a variety of faith-based organizations to distribute the clothes, including the Catholic Church, the National Council of Churches and other religious organizations.
The women’s clothing is a part of a growing faith community in the United States.
The faith apparel industry is thriving.
Last year, the American Apparel and Footwear Association reported that women in the U.S. are spending an average of $5,500 per year on clothing and accessories, and $15,000 on shoes.
But Johnson says women need faith clothing that reflects the love they have for God, and that they should be able use that faith to help them find their way back into the workforce.
“There’s a lot that we don’t know about women and the relationship between faith and work, and what they need to get done in life,” Johnson added.
“And so it’s really important that we support women in faith and empower them to find work that is fulfilling and that is good for them.”
