It was while working in several Los Angeles kitchens that Ellen had her realization: no matter how artistically the food was plated, or how elegantly the front of house was decorated, cooks and chefs were left standing in boring white, rag-like aprons. No more, she thought. And a few patterns later, she'd arrived at the solution. Her aprons are designed with the utility of a professional garment, but still quirky and fashionable enough for home wear. And now chefs from Alton Brown to Josef Centeno have joined the apron revolution, spreading the love for these hand-crafted aprons, made from superior ingredients…er, fabrics, and sewn by hand in LA.
