Many aprons are made from linen. A beautiful, durable, wrinkly and expensive fabric. Linen was the commonly used fabric for aprons before cotton became more prevalent. Many aprons now again are being crafted from linen. Why is this? They are lightweight, very durable, breathable, wear well, it withstands high temperatures and has minimal initial shrinkage and has a wonderful feel and texture to it. It is one of the oldest textiles to our planet.
One of my favorite sellers on Etsy is Bonnbonn.
Another favorite is Fog Linen Work. Beautiful photos and beautiful product. Someday I hope to get linen sheets.
Summer is here, especially in the northeast. If you are in the market for a new apron, now is the time to buy a linen one. Splurge and treat yourself to some beautiful fabric.
Happy Tuesday's Apron!
