Peter Jackson's much awaited documentary "The Beatles: Get Back" premiered on November 25th, 2021 on Disney+ and alongside it launched a capsule collection of sustainable cashmere sweaters from NY based knitwear brand Lingua Franca, hand embroidered with some of the Beatles’ most celebrated song titles. The Beatles occupy an iconic and nearly unprecedented place in our human reality–they are, inarguably, a part of our collective consciousness. Their songs are the lingua franca of our times.

Lingua Franca is in a few words, slow fashion with a fast tongue, and also a line of sustainably-sourced, fair trade luxury cashmere sweaters, all hand-stitched by women in New York City. Since the brand's lauch in 2016, Lingua Franca has donated over
$1M to various nonprofits including the ACLU Women’s Rights Project, the Movement for Black Lives and Planned Parenthood. The entire list of the brand's donations can be found here, which is updated in real time.
