We're normally keen to hide the messy sides of ourselves, for fear of seeming abnormal or embarrassing. This apron urges us to make our peace with our less than perfect, blotchy and dishevelled selves, and to proclaim that we - like everyone else - are naturally at points far from the neat and good boy or girl we should be. It's nothing to be ashamed of; it's what humans are like.
The messiness is both outer (especially when we're baking or frying) and - as significantly - inner. The apron protects us from the worst of the chaos and, at the same time, helps us to make our peace with it in a spirit of defiant joy.
