TWENTY-ONE YEARS: A JOURNEY

Twenty.one

onward through the liminal 
wan.der.lust 
air and love 
stitches 

at the edge of nature 
freefall  
renegade 
we are always coming home  

trails of overgrown memories 
home.town 
love the thread 
catch my soul 

scrub me new 
me together 
return to rethread 
aspire homeward 

crafting web 
embellish.life 
storytelling core 
to live 

and inspire 

Created in collaboration with Diana Weymar of Tiny Pricks ProjectAlabama Chanin x Tiny Pricks Project is a collection of 21 one-of-a-kind jackets, each embroidered with lines from a collection of verses that represent our journey over the past twenty-one years. Written in collaboration between Natalie and Diana and titled Twenty-One Years, the passages tell a story of creative pursuit and the art of making.   

Explore the collection.  

Over the last three months, Alabama Chanin released stories and archival photographs through our 21 Years Celebration.  

Follow the journey.
