My name is Esther Alcala and I’m the designer, maker, photographer and stylist behind enchiladamama aprons. I live in Southern California…and let me just put it out there - I’m crazy about enchiladas, hence the name for my little biz.
I’ve always worked in corporate & government jobs. They paid the bills but did little to feed my soul. I had always dabbled in sewing so, on a crazy whim, I made my first vintage apron in 2011...and it was a trainwreck. I had spent $25 on something that was pretty much unwearable. But I don't quit easily. I kept at it, studied my competition, invested in quality machines and fabrics, studied my craft , listened to my heart, and damn if I didn't get better.
I then became obsessed with new ideas, stayed up late sewing my fool head off, and could hardly sleep with a parade of apron designs dancing around…
