HOME AND KITCHEN
This apron is inspired by a certain Japanese simplicity, it is worn by simply slipping it on over the head, like a summer dress, with no fastening. Elegant over a pair of jeans, offering protection over a delicate shirt, this apron is made with hemp, the oldest plant to be used by man for fabrics, medicine, construction or paper.
The first ever Denim jeans were manufactured from hemp. But hemp was a victim of chemical industry lobbyists in the 1930s.
To buy a gift to my favorite sister, I visited the shop in Paris. A sweet sales assistant helped me to choose the colour. With its two pockets, I love it (and she loves it too! She wears it to work in her studio). My next wish? To sleep in Couleur Chanvre bedlinen!
Easy to wash (even at 60°C). Use of a tumble dryer is highly recommended to ensure that the items get their volume and flexibility back again.
