What’s a little dirt, when your water- and stain-repellent FLOWER POWER Gardening Apron protects your clothing and the cheerful floral motif makes you smile? Inspired by the beautifully landscaped gardens and Horticultural Artifacts collection at the Smithsonian, three utility pockets hold gloves (FLOWER POWER gloves are a perfect match), seed packets and more. 100% cotton, polyurethane coating for easy cleanup. Imported. Adjustable neck strap and apron ties adjust. One size fits most.
During WWII, Americans were encouraged to plant home "victory gardens" to ensure there was enough commercially-produced produce for our troops. That extraordinarily successful volunteer effort is acknowledged today at our National Museum of American History Victory Garden, where over fifty classic plants and vegetable varieties are planted.
Every Smithsonian purchase will arrive with a museum provenance card explaining how it is adapted from or inspired by an object or objects in our collection.
