From Beauty Everyday by Rinne Allen, Rebecca Wood, and Kristen Bach (page 117).
Born on this day in 1817, poet, author, philosopher, and naturalist Henry David Thoreau was an advocate of living a simple life. Today, National Simplicity Day, honors his life and works. Below, we share resources and readings that inspire us to slow down and practice a simpler, more sustainable, and intentional life.

@ Alabama Chanin
As part of our new Summer of Love collection, The Love Tee is our take on the classic ringer T-shirt and is available in a spectrum of new organic colorways.
Alongside our classic Love Tee that has been updated with new tonal colors, explore new contrast ringer options available on both white and vibrant organic lightweight cotton bodies.
Customization is among the many benefits of lean-method manufacturing. Because our garments are made to order, we offer the complimentary service of adjusting hemlines along the sleeve and body up to 3”. Note hemline adjustments at checkout, or connect with our team to learn more about opportunities to further customize fit.
@ The School of Making
July’s Swatch of the Month incorporates beaded Satin Stitching alongside The School of Making’s iconic Stars stencil.
Paired with embroidery techniques from our studio book, Alabama Studio Sewing + Design, July’s swatch revitalizes an embellishment that is, at once, impactful and simple.
