Small Batch Production Linens

I’ve been cooking more this season than ever before and am desperately in need of an apron. I’m more like a small child than a 31-year-old adult when I cook (you can typically tell what I made based on what ended up on my shirt), so getting some sort of apron on myself is mission critical. In addition to cute linen aprons, I found a handful of sweet handmade kitchen textiles at the Small Batch Production shop on Etsy. Claire Tipley hand-sews all of her designs using natural linen, which ages beautifully as you use it over time. I finally learned to embrace linen napkins (over my previous “folded paper-towel napkin” method) this year, which feels more like I’ve made a meal than just something quick to scarf down while I watch 30 Rock reruns. Claire has a variety of textiles available, ranging from aprons and napkins to tea towels. Click here to check them out in full and order online; prices range from $12–$86 a piece. xo, grace

    I love products like this that are lovely for their functionality. Just makes me want to cook something.

  2. I’m not sure how everyone else feels about it, but I love that they aren’t irons and starched to with in an inch of their life. This is so much more true to life for me.
