The fabric is about 60% linen and 40% cotton – according to Frank Leder’s guesstimation – which makes for a very comfotable and light apron. Hailing from an old army surplus, this finely woven fabric was meant to be used as covers in the late sixties, early seventies. Why they never fulfilled their original destiny? Because, Frank Leder tells us, World War III never happened. And so these wonderful fabrics was left to gather dust in storage. It’s just as well that Frank came along and decided to breathe new life into these old darlings. The idea? Using excellent craftsmanship to update a similarly well-crafted item, saving resources and preventing waste. Frank has named their stunning colour “Baltic Blue” after the Baltic Sea.
This apron comes without a print and measures approx 77,5cm x 77,5cm.
