Alabama Chanin + Heath Ceramics

Posted in Handmade by Shannon South on April 2, 2012

Two of my favorite American, craft based companies have collaborated and the outcome could not be more perfect.

Alabama Chanin is a handmade clothing label founded by Natalie Chanin in Florence, Alabama. They are known for their unique, hand stitched pieces with intricate patterns using traditional stitching techniques of the South. All of their pieces are made by local, home-working artisans and signed by them.

Heath Ceramics, a modernist ceramics factory located in Sausalito, CA was founded by ceramicist Edith Heath and has been around since 1948. Built on depression-era values, Heath was founded on the ethos of simple, good things for good people.

Natalie Chanin designed a line of ceramics for Heath and I am in love. There is a great video on the Heath website that shows a bit of the process.
