Natalie Chanin is the mastermind behind Alabama Chanin, a lifestyle company.
Charlestonians are in store for a fashion and eco-friendly exhibition as eco-fashion pioneer Natalie Chanin, in collaboration with The Commons owner Erin Reitz, hosts a trunk show at Worthwhile
, March 27-29, 10 a.m.-6 p.m.
The pop-up will feature creations from Chanin's Alabama Chanin
, a lifestyle company that produces housewares and clothing, and Reitz' The Shelter Collection
by The Commons, featuring glassware and wheel-thrown ceramics.
Though the products are different, the collections are both inspired by Southern tradition. Alabama Chanin uses 100 percent organic cotton jersey fabrics and repurposed/reclaimed materials in all of their designs, inspired by Chanin's degree in Environmental Design, with a focus on industrial and craft-based textiles.
The Shelter is a modern line of glassware and ceramics inspired by the mud hut dwelling, which The Commons interprets as the strongest architectural shape which uses the least amount of materials. While Chanin’s company is based in Alabama, Reitz designed The Shelter Collection in South Carolina and produced it in North Carolina. In addition to steins, glasses, and pitchers, this trunk show will feature wheel thrown plates and bowls from the collection.

, located at 701 East Bay St. Suite 106.
