The most cheerful way to stay clean in the kitchen, this fair trade batik Silverware Print Apron packs color and charm into one piece thanks to its cutlery-inspired print. It is handmade by women in Ghana in exchange for fair wages and employment opportunities. One side of the apron features the bright batik print and the other side is a liner made with upcycled flour sacks. Handmade so the pattern will vary slightly.
The National Museum of African Art began as a private educational institution in 1964 to promote cross-cultural understanding in the social sciences and arts. Founded by Warren M. Robbins, it was known as the Museum of African Art and located on Capitol Hill in a townhouse that had been the home of Frederick Douglass, the African American abolitionist and statesman. In 1979 the museum became part of the Smithsonian Institution, the world's largest museum and research complex dedicated to the increase and diffusion of knowledge.
