Behold – it’s a dream apron
Two senior citizens of Knysna have produced the most useful apron in the history of kitchens in Knysna. It works just like any other apron, but also has the useful metric table printed on the front. It makes for easy measurements when cooking and baking – perfect for anyone who loves to cook or bake.
“It started as a dream I had three years ago,” recalls Gudrun Cox, one of the “inventors” of the apron. “It’s been working on my mind ever since,” admits Cox, “and I really wanted to make it a reality.”
Cox also started the Knysna Networking group, where locals get together to meet and network. It is through this forum that Cox met Hilary Blowe, a seamstress who shared the same passion as Cox.
“I thought it was a wonderful idea. We played around with the location of the metric table and found the perfect design,” states Blowe.
The first apron was produced about four months ago and has since become a “sensation” in social circles all over Knysna, according to them. Dozens of hardworking housewives have placed orders, as well as guesthouses and restaurants all over Knysna.
“It’s been such a hit, people love the apron!” exclaims Cox. A small business has emerged and it is aptly called Had a Dream.
The positioning of the metric table allows for easy reading to ensure you never miss a measurement. The apron is available in all colours and is selling for R180.
