In 2008, Alabama Chanin moved operations from a three-bedroom house at Lovelace Crossroads on the outskirts of Florence, Alabama, to a former textile manufacturing facility built in 1982 in the local industrial park. The Factory, as the space is called, has become not only home to the Alabama Chanin design and production studio but also to workshops, events, and dinners. The space is filled with books, music, the hum of making, and more recently, machines for the new A. Chanin line. In 2013, Alabama Chanin began an expansion of The Factory that includes a new event space and full-service café, and houses workshop headquarters and the flagship store.
The Factory hours are as follows:
Monday – Wednesday
