Introducing, the Pinafore Apron

Aprons have held many purposes throughout human history and the pinafore apron is one of the longest running styles.  Intended to be removed easily, the pinafore has many uses from protecting the underneath clothing to indicating social status.  


Today we are seeing the use of aprons, such as the pinafore, as we return to a simpler way of living. As we include sustainable practices such as gardening, baking, and cooking at home rather than relying on factory farmed produce and highly processed fast foods, the increased need to protect ones clothes is more of a necessity.  


Try adding one to your kitchen and you'll see how beneficial an apron can be.

These Pinafore aprons are available in a wide range of colors and even prints, if that's what you prefer.  

​The one here is made of linen and has one large side pocket.

Sara Boone

1832-1904

     The next time you use your ironing board, consider the origin of the design.  Sarah Boone was born to enslaved parents but was able to secure her own freedom.  She became a dressmaker and identified a problem with the ironing process of sleeves and other contoured areas of clothing.  In response, she designed and engineered a better working ironing board which was contoured and padded so it fit the curves of clothing better and didn't leave marks or wrinkles.  

     She was awarded a patent for her design, becoming one of the first black women to be recognized in this formal way.  


     Thank you for taking a moment to learn about individuals from our history who have made an impact on our lives today.
