At Alabama Chanin, we frequently speak about the concepts of Slow Design and sustainability. We attempt to create a healthy environment so that we can create healthy products. Part of being sustainable means we take great care in the materials that we source to create our products; it also means that the processes we use to create use the most non-destructive methods possible. We keep this goal of sustainability in mind at every stage of production—from concept to final product. In our attempts to be a well-rounded, holistic company, we take inspiration from farmers and the Slow Food movement—where the results of one production process become fuel for another.
Our newest line of A. Chanin Home products are created with remainders and cuttings from the garments we make here at The Factory from 100% organic cotton knits. This is just one example of repurposing as part of our philosophy. These pillows and throws are examples of our “zero waste” approach and are pieced from a variety of fabric weights and styles to enhance the classic patchwork quality.
Choose from three styles: the James Throw and Pillow that are made from a combination of weights of 100% organic cotton in a patchwork style, the Billie Throw and Pillow that feature hand-sewn details and cut panels stenciled with our New Leaves design, and the natural indigo dye version of James Throw that is processed in our studio at The Factory.
