Oh be still our meringue-whipping, pancake-flipping, fennel-shaving, just-happy-to-be-in-the-kitchen hearts! This glorious 100% cotton apron is like the laid-back cousin of the classic French chefs aprons our mothers had growing up. Like our mothers' aprons, this one boasts a waist tie long enough to come around to the front-if that's your style, two large front pockets for wooden spoon, wiping cloth, phone (though mama always used hers to stash the recipe card in, samesies, sort of?), or whatever other kitchen ephemera always needs stashing, and an adjustable-by-button neck strap. Unlike mama's, this one is not rigid. In fact, it is the perfect balance of sturdy and flowy, as easy to wash as it is easy to wear. It's so perfectly lovely, in fact, that we have often forgotten we are wearing it and end up rocking it at the dinner table. Luckily, it's gorgeous enough to be a style statement we approve of.
About the line: Made in a small town in the Republic of Guinea known for its centuries-old indigo dyeing tradition, these are completely hand-made in Africa from 100% hand-spun, hand-woven, and hand-dyed cotton, and stuffed with the super-soft, airy-light, hand-shelled fibers of the indigenous Kapok tree. These pieces combine so many of our favorite things: clean lines, gorgeous fabrics, exquisite construction, beautiful palettes, and promoting fair wages and a healthy, safe work environment that employs over 100 artisans. Beautiful and sustainable, the designs play nice with any style.
