The Aprons of Oaxaca
The one thing that I regretted not buying on my first trip to Oaxaca was one of these aprons. While I cook frequently, and I am messy. It is not at all unusual for me to need to change clothing after cooking as a result of having gotten something, or many things, on my clothing. Despite this I never ever wear an apron. So why would I want to bring one home with me? It is a connection to place. I bought one on my last trip, and I may get one next time as well. I love the idea of a uniform and that is what these aprons are, much more than a protection for clothing.
