The Cafe Apron 2011

More Cafe Aprons. Bring the Bistro home to your kitchen! This one is chocolate brown organic cotton with an Anna Maria Horner print that is really fun to look at - and the colours! Wow. There's a slate blue-grey that she has somehow gotten away with in there that is just amazing. Click on the photo to see the rest of the aprons on Flickr - sorry, winter light has made the photos not so great.
