We love the pastel and soft tones of these British Colour Standard 100% cotton, barista-style aprons. Perfect for those summer BBQ's and cooking a Sunday roast, this stylish wrap-around apron is a kitchen textile essential. The long ties to cross-over behind and re-tie at the front add a very practical finishing touch. The apron should be washed at 40 degrees.
The 1931, British Colour Council's Dictionary of Colour Standards was dusted off from the archives by Victoria Whitbread and Jackie Piper, and used as the inspiration behind their rather colourful brand, British Colour Standard©.
The pre-war Dictionary of Colour Standards was created by Robert Francis Wilson, to ensure that there was uniformity with the colour of items across the commonwealth, from uniforms, flags, postboxes & battleships. Many of the British Colour Standard's products names have been taken from Francis Wilson's Dictionary of Colour Standards, including Battleship Grey, Peacock Green, Cornflower and Pea Green.
We love this brand not only because of it embodies eco friendly principles, through its utilisation of recycled, recyclable and fair trade products, but because of its strong associations with British heritage.
