GRATITUDE

GRATITUDE-WEB

Thank you to everyone who graciously showed their support for Alabama Chanin over the last few weeks. Your purchases, emails, and love are the things that keep us going. It has been an incredible year and we appreciate your amazing show of kindness and loyalty as we move towards the holidays and the end of the year. You make a difference.

Our studio staff and artisans are working overtime to fill all of the orders, wrap beautiful packages, and get shipments out in the next days and weeks. Our timeline for production of garments is currently 4 to 6 weeks and while some may be completed before the holidays, please keep in mind our brand practices sustainable and Slow Design, producing our goods in a socially and environmentally responsible manner. (Learn more about our production methods here.)

If your order included any gift items that might not arrive before the holidays, let us know and we will be happy to send you a note card to give to the recipient, letting them know an Alabama Chanin garment is being created just for them and will soon be on its way.

Just email office [at] alabamachanin.com or phone us Monday – Friday from 8:00am to 4:30pm CST at +1.256.760.1090 and we will get the holiday note card mailed to you as soon as possible.

DAILY JOURNAL UPDATE

When we began our mailing list back in 2004, we had a small following. As we’ve grown as a company over the years, we’ve also seen our followers grow. We want to offer you the most up-to-date information, and that often requires a little trial and error.

Recently, we added some new mailing list options. If you are signed up for our “Get It All” mailing list, you will now receive the Daily Journal.

We hope that you will enjoy our daily Journal posts in your inbox, and join our ongoing conversations about sustainable design, recipes, DIY projects, art, travel, and fashion.
