Our new collection is now available online and in-store exclusively at The Factory. With Collection #29, Natalie and our design team drew inspiration from graphic design and interiors as they created the design motifs. The garments are presented in four main colors—Natural, Black, Ochre, and Peacock. For the first time, we have produced several garments using organic French Terry. We have also extended the hand painting technique seen in our recent Indigo collection into Collection #29. Learn more about the ideas behind the collection on our Journal. Shop our collection here and be sure to check back as we are constantly adding new garments and styles. 
This section of our website has an updated look with new cookbooks—like Summerland from our October Friends of the Café Dinner chef, Anne Quatrano—and home goods, like our machine-sewn A. Chanin Tea Towels. Here you'll also find one-of-a-kind and gift items, including Rinne Allen's Light Drawings and our special Indigo Quilts. Make a special place in your home for one of our thoughtfully made products. 
Our Basics + Essentials garments are now available in updated color options like Flax and Twilight. In the coming weeks, we will offer brand new styles and colors, including new tops, classic jackets, and comfortable tunics. And we'll also introduce new items for our A. Chanin machine-made line. Our goal is to create simple and functional everyday items that integrate into your wardrobe seamlessly. Pair with an existing garment or with an embroidered piece from our new collection to create your own look.


For a limited time, we've added a selection of bright, vibrant fabric colors to our color card. Choose from Lime, Really Read, Aqua, and Surf—all 100% organic cotton and available by the yard. We have two fabric weight options for certain colors. Shop our "Bright" fabrics here, and add a burst of color to your next DIY project.
