Product Information

Article Number 42813

The word Kelsch is a Germanic word, taken from "Kölnisch Blau" (which refers to a plant grown primarily as animal feed whose leaves and stems were the sources of an old blue dye) and is used for dying the yarn with which the apron fabric is produced. And over the course of time the term "Kelsch" has come to be used, irrespective of whether the cloth is blue or red checked, to describe the material once worn by everyone in rural farming households in the Alsace region. These days, the material for this apron is made at a traditional weaving mill in northern France.

Care instructions:
Machine washable up to 60°C. Shrinkage approx. 2-3%.
