Limited edition ABCC Apron. Gift it! Wear it!

by Carol Devine on November 20, 2014

This apron is the fruit of another awesome collaboration with OSC Cross, the Toronto quality urbanwear company, The Antarctic Book of Cooking and Cleaning and the fabulous The Office of Gilbert Li who designed our book and did the apron’s penguin logo line drawing.

We have new edition books coming in early May 2015 but until then have this special Antarctic-themed  item. Give yourself a gift or gift it to a friend, co-worker, loved one, sibling, babysitter, grandparent, teacher or favourite expedition leader.

On purpose we had them made in Southern Ocean blue and Antarctic moss khaki to remind us and you of the Antarctic while cooking. It has durable yet soft cloth, lining, two pockets and an adjustable strap. Made in Canada. Fine tailoring. C$60 (local delivery or pick up in Toronto, postage extra) contact carol@theantarcticbookofcookingandcleaning.com to order. Discounts for 5 or more.)

One size fits all – even kids.
