The aprons we tested were the organic cotton twill unisex apron which comes in Moonless Night Black, Chocolate Brown and Natural. The second was the Ladies Black and White half apron. Both had easy to use straps, pockets that were deep enough to hold things and both were well made. The aprons are cut and sewn in the USA by a family-owned company using certified organic cotton from one of the USA's few eco-friendly textile artisans.

Cleaning is simple by hand wash or washed in cold water. Lacey suggests using an eco-friendly detergent and then hang to dry.
The best thing, I didn't feel like I was wearing a stiff synthetic tarp. I ended up wearing it almost daily while testing items for this article.
