Since 2012 I've been designing and sewing linen and hemp aprons for individuals and businesses from my small studio. I love sewing, learning about sustainable fabrics, creating, and connecting with others. I make aprons I want to wear (and do!) by creating simple designs in flattering, functional patterns. It's my belief that if you use natural, sustainable fabrics and quality stitches, the beauty of the items speak for themselves. I love Japanese style aprons and linen pinafores you might see in an Anne of Green Gables movie. I hope my aprons inspire people to frolic in the sun, feel free, and be creative.
Studiopatro designs and makes beautiful and useful linens for the kitchen and the cook. Our linen aprons and towels are inherently sustainable, handprinted, and crafted locally in small batches with exacting attention to craftsmanship.

They also make fun and creative pillows, bags, beach totes, aprons, and other personal and home accessories with their unique textile collection.
