Alabama Chanin

One great thing about being in school: guest artists! Last week SCAD welcomed Natalie Chanin of Alabama Chanin to give a lecture, present her work and visit with students. It is always inspiring to hear someone speak with passion and truly believe in the work they do!

With a focus on slow design and sustainability, all garments are hand stitched and constructed by individual stitchers in rural Alabama. The fabrics are lovely and the garments are absolutely stunning!!

Her website has loads of images for inspiration!! If you’re dying for something in print you can  get your hands on a book: Alabama Stitch Book. And if you MUST have one of these garments by cannot afford the price, check out their website for instructions and fabric!
