Natalie Chanin in her “359This month’s issue of Domino magazine features a day in the life of designer Natalie Chanin. One of the first things that shocked me was the fact that her day starts at 4:48 am. That in itself is an accomplishment – but she’s done much more than that.

Her company, Alabama Chanin makes everything from fabric to furnishings, jewelery to clothing. Much of the material they use is organic, recycled, fair trade, and all of the work is done by hand in the USA.

Natalie is pictured in her gorgeous white coat from Alabama Chanin cotton, which looks incredible with her snowy white hair. Hand-made isn’t cheap. It retails at $15,540 at Jeffrey.

And if a fifteen thousand dollar coat isn’t your thing, here’s my fave: the Alabama Builds shirt made in the USA from organic cotton. At $75 bucks, this tee isn’t exactly a bargain, but all of the profits go to Architecture for Humanity and their work in the Gulf Coast Region. She also offers DIY kits for several projects.

I was really intrigued by this woman – and I bet you will be, too. Read more about her day which includes gardening, prepping her book that will be out next spring, and hang drying fabrics for the new collection to save energy. (Did you hear that Project Laundry List?!?)
