In The Making - Aprons are worn by potters, printmakers, jewellery designers, fine artists, glassware artists, sculptors, weavers, art restorers, artisan businesses, gardeners…The range continues to develop through design collaborations with artists, observing their creative practices and looking for practical solutions to their workwear needs. Being a maker and painter myself, I have a special fondness for my aprons, putting one on gives me a thrill of anticipation as I get ready to work!
Working at my little studio, in hilly-leafy South-East London UK, I design and make aprons in small batches. In The Making - Aprons are made of cotton canvas, denim or drill, selected for the appropriate weights, washability and durability. Utmost attention is paid to detail, finish and strength of the construction. I cut fabric economically minimizing waste, saving remnants to make one-of-a-kind aprons and bags for my Boro Collection.
