Announcement    USPS is running late due to COVID-19. Free Next Day Domestic Shipping from Jasper, Alabama to the USA Only.

I have a great sentimental memory of the aprons always worn by my Mother and Grandmother. While living in and out of Mexico for over 22 years I enjoyed meeting, assisting, sponsoring seamstresses in the making of aprons. These are great people whom I hold in high esteem.

Aprons and Craft Smocks

I started designing garden aprons, hats, and gloves with the help of some good people at the NYC Garment District using upholstery fabric I salvaged from furniture companies.

I later moved to Mexico and lived there on and off for 22 years. I assisted with purchasing startup material for aprons and other products with the great assistance of my long-time friend Brenda Ru, her Mother, and Grandmother.
