“Summer has filled her veins with light and her heart is washed with noon.”
—C. Day Lewis

@ Alabama Chanin  

Explore our Summer of Love collection—an ode to the Love Tee and more designs to love for summer. 

Alongside our classic Love Tee that has been updated with new tonal colors, find 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 with reintroduced kits, the Stars Alabama Sweater Crop Top and Tunic and the Stars Cropped Drawstring Pant.  

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. Our featured partner for this month is Lady Farmer, a slow living community that celebrates beauty and simplicity in creating a sustainable life.
