By Natalie Chanin
For more than a decade, Alabama Chanin has been dedicated to the importance of ethical and responsible production that values community. This book follows both Natalie Chanin's personal story and the story of Alabama Chanin, revealing how the techniques she pioneered and the company she founded have challenged and inspired the sewing and fashion industries. Chapters include reflections on design—craft, technique, relationship, repeat, and color—and lessons in sewing and embroidery, as well as engaging stories from Chanin's life. In examining the history of a beloved company and a cherished craft, Embroidery explores how sewing and embroidery relate to wider concerns of sustainability and community.
