"In the kitchen of the home where I grew up there was a drawer for nothing but aprons. My mother and my grandmother would not be caught in the kitchen without one. The first thing I see when that room rises up in memory is a woman standing by the stove ... a woman in an apron."

A. Skeen, autor and professor

"In America, in a tenement flat, my grandmother wore one apron and over it another, to keep the first one clean for when company came."

E. Shakir, Lebanese autor and professor

This apron reminds me of the two little dresses I received from my two friends, Mounir and Hassan, when I was 4 years old and living in Beyouth.
I still have them, folded in a suitcase in the attic.
My daughter wore them when she was
4 ... She had to, even though it was Winter and they were Summer dresses!
