    Item details
    Inspiration: The inspiration for this apron came from all the women who have worked hard and cared for their families - always. The apron, orforkle(norwegian) was worn by women from morning til night as their work on the homestead and as Mothers was a constant. The apron helped protect the few dresses they ownedand it was easier to wash an apron or two, than the bigger shirts and dresses that they were wearing. We found old photos from Norway of women in everyday settings and kept in mind the modern woman when designing it. This isnt your basic one piece covering, but rather invokes the timeless appeal of the carefully pieced together covering from days long ago, while presenting a clean, beautiful finish for the modernvertinne(hostess). We are excited to honor the women who worked so hard in a bygone era, by recreating their work attire, the apron. Check out the old photos at the end of the product photos.

Apron poem byTina Trivett The strings were tied, it was freshly washed, and maybe even pressed.For Grandma, it was everyday to choose one when she dressed.The simple apron that it was, you would never think about;the things she used it for, that made it look worn out.She may have used it to hold some wildflowers that she'd found.Or to hide a crying child's face when a stranger came around.Imagine all the little tears that were wiped with just that cloth.Or it became a potholder to serve some chicken broth.She probably carried kindling to stoke the kitchen fire.To hold a load of laundry, or to wipe the clothesline wire.When canning all her vegetables, it was used to wipe her brow.You never know, she might have used it to shoo flies from the cow.She might have carried eggs in from the chicken coop outside.Whatever chore she used it for, she did them all with pride.When Grandma went to heaven, God said she now could rest.I'm sure the apron that she chose, was her Sunday best.
