Shopper’s Diary: Aprons from Winter Session in Chicago

Chicago-based Winter Session was founded by a trio of friends over a series of coffee conversations at a local neighborhood cafe. They realized they shared a common love for handmade, high-quality, affordable utilitarian goods; the result of their collaboration includes a collection of aprons (which they sew themselves) made from denim and reclaimed fabrics from decommissioned work uniforms. For more information, go to Winter Session.
