Description

This linen apron is ideal for baking and is a special edition, luxury design we created for those who want to be compelled to head into the kitchen! Part of a zero-waste lifestyle, and reducing our impact on the Earth, is cooking our own meals and baking what we can, where it’s accessible to you. We love carving up a little more time each day to take all the vegetables and turn them into a meal, or finally learn to make that delightful bread we’ve had our eye on.

The apron has a lengthy strap that wraps around just under the bust and can be tied into a beautiful bow at both the back and the front. It is ethically and sustainably made and falls slightly above or below the knee, made using recovered linens redirected from landfill.

Just in case you happen to want to wear this apron hugging against your skin without clothing (no judgement here – the naked chef was popular for a reason!), our items are made at our little centre in rural Cambodia where we routinely are without water (no running water exists in our village) and power. This apron is therefore not prewashed and we recommend that you do before you wear as it will soften and sit softly on your skin. Over time the fabric will soften more (it usually takes 3 – 5 washes to really soften into its ideal state).

By purchasing this product you are reducing plastic waste, not using new virgin materials which can contribute to climate change, supporting our education and research across the world, providing jobs to vulnerable women in Cambodia in our own little product centre, and helping to support environmentalism & education to kids and communities in Cambodia.

These aprons are designed to last for years but at end of life, this product can simply be returned to the ground in compost or buried.

Our aprons are handmade at our own little centre supporting ethical labor and a happy workplace in rural Cambodia.

Fabric
Our linen aprons are made from recycled linens. Our fabric is redirected from landfill in order to reduce our environmental impact. Instead of using new (virgin) materials, we collect fabrics that would otherwise have been burned or found their way to landfill. New materials take an enormous amount of resources to produce so we prefer to use fabrics that are already in existence and would have gone to waste. These fabrics exist from an over-supply to businesses, wrong orders, unused due to changes etc. We collect these and use them for our products.

Label
Our labels were made from the off-cuts we save whilst cutting our products so you may receive a product with this made from hemp or linen. We have since transitioned to 100% cotton labels and now use those off-cuts for other products to retain zero waste.

Included in this item is:

1 x linen apron
1 x eco-friendly product package
1 x custom designed, recyclable tissue paper

This is an easy-care product. Place this bag into your washing machine on a gentle, cold cycle. Hang to dry or lay flat to dry. Do not tumble dry. There may be some small shrinkage from the first wash.

Just in case you happen to want to wear this apron hugging against your skin without clothing (no judgement here – the naked chef was popular for a reason!), our items are made at our little centre in rural Cambodia where we routinely are without water (no running water exists in our village) and power.

Over time the fabric will soften more (it usually takes 3 – 5 washes to really soften into its ideal state).

We only use plastic-free packaging and ensure everything is eco-friendly and beautifully presented. Your item is provided inside a minimal, recycled card packaging box using post-consumer waste. Your item is shipped inside one of our boxes or a reused option which can be recycled or composted and where required is kept protected with 100% post-consumer waste shredded paper (recycled or composted).

Where products are wrapped, our tissue paper is custom designed, eco-friendly printed with vegetable ink. The tissue paper is acid, lignin and sulfur free and FSC certified (Forest Stewardship Council to promote sustainable forestry).

Our mailers and envelopes are made from recycled materials. Our thank you cards are made from 100% recycled cotton t-shirts. We use paper tape for any additional closures. Please compost and recycle our packaging as appropriate.

At end of life, the product can be cut up into pieces and buried or composted.
