“The best clothing to be found at the Country Living Fair was from Farmhouse Frocks who offers handmade American women’s clothing out of Ohio. This is the most wonderfully home-grown brand story I have witnessed coming out of the Midwest scene in recent memory.”

FARMHOUSE FROCKS BACKGROUND
The mission of Farmhouse Frocks is to bring forth natural elegance created through the flowing, often lacy and ruffled, Farmhouse Style. The clothing offers varied textured fabrics in petite to plus-sizes so that every woman discovers something created just for her. Farmhouse Frocks was created through the ingenuity and determination of Lena Schlabach with input and support from her family and a wide circle of friends. Lena always dreamed of empowering other women by providing unique, beautiful, and comfortable clothing for all sizes. The company ignited using the shopper-friendly online platform: Etsy. Within a year, Lena’s Instagram following grew to over 80,000 and counting with sales surprisingly rapid. Within two years, two studios have opened in the United States with global sales within reach.
Farmhouse Frocks provides clothing, which has a classy fit and looks fabulous. Unique, artisan jewelry and hand-sewn, custom-designed leather purses are also in the product line. Farmhouse Frocks uses American-made linen, fleece, jersey and knit fabrics in its clothing items, all hand-sewn by Amish women in Millersburg, Ohio. Lena Schlabach was raised Amish but left the culture several years ago. Her lifelong dream of designing women’s clothing is coming to fruition with studios in two places she loves dearly: Millersburg, Ohio, where she was raised.
