In 2008, Alabama Chanin moved operations from a three-bedroom house at Lovelace Crossroads on the outskirts of Florence, Alabama, to a former textile manufacturing facility built in 1982 in the local industrial park. The Factory, as the space is called, has become not only home to the Alabama Chanin design and production studio but also to workshops, events, and dinners. The space is filled with books, music, the hum of making, and more recently, machines for the new A. Chanin line. In 2013, Alabama Chanin began an expansion of The Factory that includes a new event space and full-service café, and houses workshop headquarters and the flagship store.
Our café is open from 11:00 am until 2:00 pm Monday - Saturday; it features seasonal menus with foods sourced from local and/or organic ingredients.
The Alabama Chanin store is open from 9:00 am until 5:00 pm each weekday and from 10:00 am - 4:00 pm on Saturdays. We are closed on Sunday.
Guided Factory tours are offered at 2:00 pm on weekdays.
The Factory also hosts an event space that can be used by the community, with the ability to cater small lunches, host local or traveling art exhibits, music events, and other exciting happenings.
