“Memory, for these times at 0fr Paris”, 2017 by Rinne Allen 

“We are a nation not only of dreamers, but also of fixers. We have looked at our land and people, and said, time and time again, “This is not good enough; we can be better.” 

― Dan Rather, What Unites Us: Reflections on Patriotism 

Racial injustice, a global pandemic, economic uncertainty, and a presidential election have resulted in a fraught time in our country. It is during these times that we must constantly remind ourselves to not lose sight of the good that unites us as Americans. This week we share resources that promote this sense of community. We also invite you to pause for a moment to give consideration and thanks for our common ground (no matter how difficult it can be to see) and to be reminded of the good work it takes to embrace and promote this solidarity. And, of course, don’t forget to vote.

@ Alabama Chanin 

We’ve released new styles— The Rosa TopThe Willie Top, and The Claudette Skirt—in an organic heavy-weight rib-knit fabric that stretches but also has sturdy structure to it. Also look for two new waffle-knit styles—Mable Waffle Cardigan and the Nina Waffle Vest that are great for layering.  

Read about our collection and design inspiration which looks to the Arts and Crafts Movement and Bauhaus movements.
