A Charmant staple, these practical aprons are fashioned from vintage French linen sheets. I dye them (always different, always an experiment), and then work as many aprons out as possible - usually two, sometimes three from one sheet. This was done long ago also; upcycling is nothing new. My secret pleasure is finding the reweavings, the darning, the mending in these fabrics. On some, you'll find a fancy monogram, or maybe a cross-stitched monogram. Wear this, until it's worn out, then cut it up to make something else.

Japanese Apron - Vintage French Linen

  • The first time you launder your apron, wash it alone, to let any residual dye flush out.
