You may use the carrier of your choice to ship your return, but we recommend using a method that is trackable and insured. We are not responsible for any packages that are lost or damaged in transit.

Any refund will be credited back to the credit card used on the order. We cannot accept COD returns.

If an item returned to Alabama Chanin was either sent without return authorization or is not approved upon receipt, the item will be returned to the customer and the customer will be responsible for any associated shipping charges. Alabama Chanin will not be responsible for any returned packages that are lost or damaged in transit.



Because each Custom DIY Kit is created based on individual specifications, we do not accept returns of any Custom DIY Kits. We apologize for any inconvenience this may cause.

Please choose carefully as you complete your design process. Use our Custom DIY Guide and Garment Descriptions PDF when making your project selections, paying careful attention to the size chart to ensure proper fit.

If you receive a kit and find that anything is incorrect or defective, please contact our Customer Service team.



We look forward to each workshop, as it gives us an up-close and personal experience with our customers and fellow makers.
Because each workshop at The School of Making involves advanced preparation of materials, catering, and instruction, we require that a written cancellation request be sent at least four weeks prior to your workshop.

If you decide to cancel your registration after the four-week time frame, we will be happy to reschedule your enrollment for another date. If you are unable to reschedule for another workshop, Alabama Chanin will offer you store credit in the amount of the workshop.

We make all of our garments to order, which means order fulfillment may take up to six weeks due to the nature of our production process and shipping times.

Practicing lean method manufacturing (made-to-order production) helps us reduce and even eliminate waste in our process and operate in a sustainable manner. Thank you for your patience as we custom make your items.

Quality is important to us. We strive to always create the best possible product for you and to provide the very best in customer satisfaction.

Please allow ample production and shipping time for all of our garments and DIY Kits; production times vary based on type and difficulty. You will receive a notification to your email on file when your package ships.
Orders are processed Monday – Friday.

DOMESTIC SHIPPING: All domestic shipments are sent via FedEx unless otherwise noted.

INTERNATIONAL SHIPPING: All international shipments are sent via FedEx. The customer is responsible for all duties and taxes associated with their package—this is not included in the shipping cost, nor is Alabama Chanin responsible for those amounts. Please note that we cannot guarantee a delivery date.

We offer free shipping on domestic orders over $1000 and ship via FedEx. Free shipping is not offered on international orders, nor is it offered on purchases originally over $1000 that discount below that amount.
International orders for Custom DIY are subject to a separate shipping charge. Our team will contact you after you have made your purchase.



In our continuing efforts to become a better company and commit to ecological sustainability, Alabama Chanin now ships FedEx packages using carbon neutral shipping.

Carbon neutral means that a person or a company reduces carbon dioxide emissions to counterbalance emissions made elsewhere. In the case of our shipping method, FedEx calculates the carbon impact each transported Alabama Chanin package has on the environment. Then, on behalf of Alabama Chanin, FedEx purchases a carbon offset for an emission reduction project somewhere else in the world, like the Garcia River Forestry in California.

When your next order ships from our studio, know that you are supporting carbon neutral efforts, offsetting your carbon footprint, and helping us to build a sustainable environment for work and life.



We accept the following payment methods.

Credit Cards: Visa, MasterCard, American Express, and JCB. The total will be charged to your card when the order is placed.

We feature a fast checkout option, allowing you to securely save your credit card details so that you don't have to re-enter them for future purchases.

Payment installments are available through Shop Pay and PayPal.
