Sustainable Home Goods from the Deep South

Margot Guralnick February 02, 2015

All struggling hometowns need a Natalie Chanin. For more than a decade, we’ve watched with interest as the former NYC-based stylist returned to her roots, founding her own organic cotton fashion company, Alabama Chanin, in Florence, Alabama. She also publishes sewing books, runs a cafe and community center, leads DIY workshops, hosts conferences, and, more recently, has re-established machine textile manufacturing in Florence by taking over a defunct factory. We especially like her new tabletop accessories.

Above: No scrap goes unused at Alabama Chanin. Hand-Loomed Potholders are made from organic cotton jersey remnants. They’re available in 11 colors and are $30 each.

Above: The one-size-fits-most A. Chanin Long Apron is also organic cotton jersey. It’s $40 for natural (shown) and $50 in indigo. A two-pocket A. Chanin Short Apron is also available for $30.

Above: Six-ounce Etched Glasses come in two patterns, Diamonds (shown) and a floral called Magdalena, for $12 each.

Above: Another view of the etched glasses (N.B.: Grapefruit-and-Watercress-Scented Candles are also offered in the tumblers for $25 each; they come with metal lids and can be used as canisters after the candles burn).

Above: Organic Cotton Jersey Napkins, 20-by-20-inch squares, are made in 11 colors; they’re sold in bundles of four for $48 in the color of your choice.

Above: Organic Jersey Cocktail Napkins, 10-by-10-inch squares, are available in 15 colors; they’re sold in bundles of four for $25.

Above: The James Pillow, 18 by 18 inches, is patched together from organic cotton scraps and filled with 75 percent goose down and 25 percent goose feathers; $138. 

Above: Yarn Balls of organic cotton–for use in craft projects, to tie presents, and as decoration–come in 52 colors and in three sizes starting at $38 each. Lighter-weight Kitchen Twine, made from organic cotton jersey scraps spun into 50-yard rolls, are also available for $30.

Go to Alabama Chanin to see more and to explore Natalie Chanin’s ever-expanding universe.
