We recently wrote about our changes in supply chain, fabric dyeing issues, and difficulty building up our fabric stock. After lengthy discussions and much exploration, we’ve decided to reduce our color selection to 25 of our most popular colors. These colors will be continuously available and include essential colors and customer favorites; while other colors on our color cards, along with additional seasonal, limited-edition colors, will rotate on and off of this list periodically.
Beginning in the spring, we will also offer a seasonal DIY color card, which will include suggested elastic, embroidery floss, paint, and bead choices to match—to help create new design choices and options.
You’ll notice that certain colors on our permanent list are still backordered or at low stock, we are working diligently with our new dye house to re-build our stock and new colors are arriving every week.
While change is never easy, this evolution has given us the opportunity to put the Alabama Chanin vision into action—adapting processes rather than compromising our mission. This is simply another way that we are working to streamline our production processes, by further reducing our company’s waste and condensing our fabric inventory.
We’ve appreciated your patience during this time of transition; please let us know if we can be of assistance in any way.
Our current color stock will be available as long as supplies last as a limited-edition range. Purchase our limited-edition color range (in both medium- and lightweights) here (while supplies last).
