“There is beauty in simplicity and even the most elaborate garments and patterns can be built upon basic techniques and simple stitches. But, just because something is simple doesn’t mean it isn’t important. When you build a business around such a philosophy as sustainability or slow design, as we strive to do, every small step is important, every material is important, and every person who is part of the making process leaves their mark on the work.” – Natalie Chanin, from the NC State DesignLife Interview, 2016
Classic designs, elevated with organic and recycled fabrics and construction that utilize hand-sewing skills passed down through generations of our community, fill the Alabama Chanin archives. For nearly 20 years Natalie and Alabama Chanin have honored the past while moving resolutely towards the future.
Our newest Collection is no different. Embracing sustainability and the notion that there is beauty in simplicity, the Collection debuts in March with pieces inspired by the Alabama Chanin Collection archives.
