Alabama Chanin is a lifestyle company producing well-designed and thoughtfully-made goods for the person and the home in our community in Florence, Alabama. We use 100% organic cotton jersey fabric in our designs, sourced sustainably from seed to fabric—along with repurposed and reclaimed materials. Made in the USA, Alabama Chanin is a leader in slow design and elevated craft due to a strong belief in tradition, dedication to locally-sewn garments and goods, alongside strict principles of sustainability and lean method production. At Alabama Chanin, we preserve traditions of community, design, producing, and living arts by examining work and life through the acts of storytelling, photography, education, and making.
Located in the midst of the Alabama Chanin design and production studio, The Factory features the company’s flagship store and café. The store features the newest Alabama Chanin hand-sewn collection, machine-made line, accessories, home goods, dinnerware, kitchenwares from local artisans, as well as a selection of fabrics, sewing notions and tools, books, and more. Stop by to meet our helpful sales team and learn more about each of our locally- and regionally-made products.
