Linen is a timeless material that’s nearly synonymous with warm weather and summertime—it’s long been one of our favorite textiles for effortless apparel and breezy table linens—which is why we’re so excited to introduce our new collection of linen aprons, in multiple styles and colorways.
With convenient pockets and a one-size-fits-all style, each is made by hand to be worn while working in the kitchen, garden, or other creative pursuits—in other words, to make ordinary moments a little more special and memorable through the luxury of beautiful materials.
We asked our founder, Anne, to share more about this collection, the partnership with the maker, and where she hopes these aprons will find a place in our customers’ daily lives and memories. Read on to hear what she had to say and to shop the collection!
Epic Linen is a family business that’s been in the linen industry for generations. Can you touch on their textile heritage and why they were the right fit for this collection?
Epic Linen is a fourth-generation textile business that has blossomed into a design house. They know what they are doing, and believe that each item should be cut and sewed by hand.
That discipline and attention to detail made our decision easy as we looked for partners for this project.
Why linen as a material?
Linen is amazing! It breathes, gets softer the more you wash it, and I honestly like when it wrinkles as you wear it. The ‘lived in’ feel of linen makes me happy.
Tell us about the partnership with Epic Linen— what was the process like creating this collection of aprons?
The process was fun! I connected with Joana on the Epic Linen team, and we began corresponding about color options, lead times, etc. I then worked internally with the Favor team to decide on color options for our customers and we sorted them out to release seasonally throughout 2021.
Kids’ sizes mean that little ones can also help out and dress the part. As a mother to young girls, how do you see children and their parents, grandparents and loved ones making memories in these beautiful pieces?
So many answers to this question! Yes, my daughters are 7 and 4, so ‘dressing up’ is part of their daily routine. Wearing the aprons on their own as they play in their pretend kitchen is already happening in our house!
I honestly think the aprons are an amazing way to usher in making memories! Baking holiday cookies, gardening outside together, and getting out all the craft supplies on a rainy day are all perfect "apron wearing activities" to me!
