For many years our studio space has had a lovingly used apron from the 40’s hanging from our bookshelf. When the New York Times came to photograph our space, they were keen to get it in their frame — it’s a bit of a lighthouse for the life we want our pieces to have once they leave our shop. Working in reverse, we we eager to take on this hardware store classic, favoring homespun construction and dye techniques that are no longer a part of the story of modern work clothing.
We used an uncommon curved top hem that makes wearing this piece higher up on your waist extremely comfortable and flattering. The straps are left long (with selvedge ends), for you to wear tied in the front or back. Two front pockets are gusseted so that once worn and broken, they hang slightly ajar, making it a breeze to pocket various bits and bobs. The 9 oz Texas Organic cotton is hand dyed by textile and natural dye guru, Amy DuFault in her home studio on Cape Cod. The nature of of the cotton canvas required multiple steps to achieve such a rich, sea blue color. Made with love, just this one time.
