gold cast fabric cuff by Alabama Chanin has me thinking dark thoughts. If you look closely, you can see that the precious metal is sewn through with real thread.
I know many of you are already fans of the the brilliant Natalie Chanin. I like her commitment to keeping the whole chain of production local to her community, her use of organic cotton and of course her beautiful, flattering designs. I like the way she shares her patterns and techniques so anyone can make their own "Alabama Chanin". And I also like the way she reduces waste by finding clever uses for her scraps and off cuts. She is no doubt a smart businesswoman, but she gives the impression, at least, of being one with vision and integrity.
