“We press onward to design and produce in a way that will stand the test of time and holistically benefit the environment, people, and global communities.” – Alabama Chanin
Founded in 2019 as a 501(c)(3), Project Threadways records, studies, and explores the history of the textiles. The organization utilizes Alabama Chanin’s experience and Natalie’s vision through academic partnerships and programing where the findings are shared with the public. There is a critical need for PPE manufacturing at this moment and for the documentation of this time. Both Alabama Chanin and Project Threadways are actively addressing these important subjects.
A note from Alabama Chanin:
Because of the number of guest orders we’ve received and our daily production capacity at The Factory, we’ve partnered with two multi-generation family businesses that have committed to keeping manufacturing alive in the USA. We’re extremely grateful to find like-minded, family-owned businesses in the midst of this crisis. These critical partnerships have allowed us to speed up our delivery times and also begin to supply larger institutions and health-care providers with masks. We’re proud that our product and production have been able to serve so many at this time. While we are updating our colors and shortening our delivery times, we are also making room in our production for orders of 100, 1,000, 10,000, or more.
We value you and your support, and wholeheartedly understand the urgent need for face masks right now. We are proud that we can make these items, supporting our team members and communities across our country and around the globe.
