Foxes and owls and bears, oh my! Fun, forest-dwelling animals live on the Lapuan Kankurit Metsäpolku Green/Black Apron among leafy trees and sprouting mushrooms. Bring some outdoor inspiration inside as you prepare meals and protect your clothing at the same time. A roomy front pocket and lengthy neck tie makes this garment as functional as it is fashionable. Expertly woven from cotton and linen by the 'Masters of Linen" at the Lapuan Kankurit mill in Finland, this high-quality garment will last even through the messiest of meal-making. Meaning forest trail in Finnish, the Lapuan Kankurit Metsäpolku Green/Black Pot Holder will bring both a cozy cottage feel to your kitchen and keep your clothing clean.
Care: First wash separately before use in abundant water. Gentle spinning. Do not tumble dry. Linen shrinks about 5%.
Four generations of weavers unite to create the heritage-strong brand of Lapuan Kankurit, currently ran by Esko Hjelt and his wife Jaana. The family business began as a wool and felt boot factory in 1917 creating quality wool textiles. Today, the same heart and soul goes into Lapuan Kankuri... More Lapuan Kankurit
This apron is dramatic, heavy-duty, easy to adjust, has a convenient pocket, everything you'd want for use -- but it's so beautiful I hate the idea of getting it all spattered.Maybe you need two, one to wear and one to protect the one you're wearing.

Charming apron that lives up to the Lapuan Kankurit quality. My daughter runs a preschool so the multitude of animals will be the focus of the children in her care. She won't have to worry about spills and stains since the apron is black and dark green.
