Thoughtful design. Responsible production. Good business. Quality that lasts.
Alabama Chanin is a lifestyle company producing well-designed and thoughtfully-made goods for the person and the home in our community in Florence, Alabama. We use 100% organic cotton jersey fabric in our designs, sourced sustainably from seed to fabric—along with repurposed and reclaimed materials.
The company that has become what Alabama Chanin is today began early in 2000 with the creation of hand-sewn garments made from cotton jersey fabric by founder and slow design pioneer Natalie Chanin. Heirloom pieces are made from 100% organic cotton, sewn by hand through a group of talented artisans who each run their own business, in their own time, and in their own way. The company maintains sustainable practices—across its disciplines—and creates sustainable products, holding ourselves to the highest standards for quality. We are makers and educators, working to elevate and
merge design, craft, and fashion.
Made in the USA, Alabama Chanin is a leader in slow design and elevated craft due to a strong belief in tradition, dedication to locally-sewn garments and goods—both hand- and machine-sewn—alongside strict principles of sustainability and lean method production. At Alabama Chanin, we preserve traditions of community, design, producing, and living arts by examining work and life through the acts of storytelling, photography, education, and making.
