Couleur Nature Artist-Designed, Hand-Printed Fig and Leaves Apron


Such a lovely watercolor-like design of figs in blue and green with a bit of brown on linen white cotton imbues this handmade apron with the relaxed chic of Provence. 

A stylish apron is a must, especially if you are entertaining and cooking for guests. And you can consider this special apron your little black dress of the kitchen.

A Couleur Nature creation, the apron is designed by classically trained artist and designer Bruno Lamay in his Paris studio, where he draws inspiration from 18th century patterns and the rich traditions of Provence.

The apron is then hand-printed in Jaipur, India, using ancient woodblock printing techniques, which create a unique artisanal piece. Here is the process:

Artist Lamy creates original art using a variety of media — watercolor, acrylic, pencil, etc.

The design is replicated on tracing paper, drawn on wood using a sharp needle, and then it is chiseled into teakwood.

The cotton fabric is then laid on a flat table and rich dyes reflecting colors found in nature are applied to the cloth.

Once all colors are applied, the fabric is cut and stitched into an apron. 

So, this Couleur Nature creation is much more than an apron, it truly is the result of a collaboration that spans continents, disciplines and centuries, and we really love that!

And, whether it's Friday night cocktails and dinner or Saturday afternoon barbecue or Sunday morning pancakes — any time, really — we think you will, too!

Also makes a wonderfully unique gift.
