A reflections of the past, while walking into the future. Bring a piece of authentic Japanese tradition into your contemporary life.
For the end of year gifts, I decided to make aprons for my studio team. I used this beautiful Japanese retro fabrics that I have kept for many years.
They have many pockets to keep pencils, measuring tape, snip scissors, and a few other things... the perfect utility apron.
In our busy everyday work, it's easy to lose those things all the time and our clothes were often damaged by rubbing on the edge of our rough cutting table.
Those retro images are logos of four different long established Japanese companies which have been operating for more than 100 years. Their logos indicate strength and unity. They are a soy sauce company, roofing company, sake wine company, and a textile dyeing company. I love their beautiful logos!
Once we made those aprons my team looks more together and united and so cool. Do you agree?
One day we will make our own logo for our own apron!
Many of my dogstar team have started wearing the apron outside of work. They really look great with the apron! Do you think aprons can be a part of fashion?
