The Factory opened to the public in November of 2013 with our flagship store and accompanying café. The Slow Food movement has informed much of our work, and so we envisioned a space where the two merge—slow food served fresh and slow design made locally. We hope you’ll be able to visit us in our community of The Shoals and explore our world.
The Factory Store has its own presence on our website for guests who wish to plan time to take advantage of our in-store Shopping services—including private appointments, custom orders, Bridal dresses, and registries. We’ve had visitors from across the world walk through our doors, and we’ve love to host you next.
We have a strong belief in transparency—of methods, materials, supply chain, and practices—and we’ll show you how we design and manufacture on a guided tour of The Factory. We offer group tour packages including lunch and a workshop. If you can’t visit just yet, take a virtual tour of our operation.
Our Events calendar aims to offer unique experiences for and in our community. Look for sewing and cooking workshops, farm-to-table dinners, design lectures, and other enrichment and creative learning opportunities.
Check back on the Journal tomorrow as we highlight The School of Making on AlabamaChanin.com, and on Friday, Bldg. 14.
