Thank you to all of the artisans and Alabama Chanin employees—past and present—who have sewed our collections and been a part of our journey and growth. and have touched our lives daily.

Thank you to all of the designers, artists, and thinkers who have been a part of our making journey. In the words of the great Helen Keller (a Shoals native), “Alone we can do so little; together we can do so much.”

Thank you to our guests who have welcomed our designs—from Project Alabama to Alabama Chanin—into your wardrobes, homes, and lives. 

We thank the maker community, and our local community in The Shoals, for extending your warmth and hospitality over the years.

Finally, our deepest gratitude to everyone who read along in this journey with us. Whether you read an entry, or devoured new stories as they were released throughout the last three months—we thank you for sharing in this celebration.
