Alabama Chanin is dedicated to keeping design and production local to founder Natalie Chanin’s hometown of Florence, Alabama, and has been since its inception in 2006. Using only 100% organic cotton jersey, the company engages local artisans based in and around the Shoals community to hand sew its products. With the introduction of A. Chanin, a machine-made line produced under the same strict principals of responsible, sustainable manufacturing that Alabama Chanin is known for, the company now offers its products to a wider audience while adding jobs to the local economy. The A. Chanin label is both an integral part of Alabama Chanin and a stand-alone entity. This line embraces our company’s commitment to sustainability and local, hometown manufacturing.
The A. Chanin line consists of 100% organic cotton jersey garments made on machines housed in the Florence Industrial Park, and offers a wide range of organic cotton products at an accessible price point, allowing us to offer sustainable garments to a wider range of customers. While consumer concern about overseas clothing production rises, A. Chanin hopes to offer an ethically-produced, American made alternative.
