Alabama Chanin

Natalie Chanin returned from New York to her Southern American homeland to set up her design and manufacturing fashion business - Alabama Chanin.
As we look at sustainability, this company have now taken upcycling as far as bridal wear and can inspire us to reduce, reuse and recycle all manner of T-shirts and jersey fabrics into something brand new. Hand sewing, embroidery, stencilling and beading never looked so good. The authenticity behind this company is impressive and relies on the craft skills passed down through the generations and honed in traditional quilting bees. Get together with your colleagues, set up a bee and go stitch . . . .
