The Poro half apron by Lapuan Kankurit is adorned with an illustration by Teemu Järvi depicting a Lapland reindeer – the apron is named after the Finnish word for the majestic animal. The waist apron is woven at the Lapuan Kankurit weaving mill in Finland using European Masters of Linen linen and organic cotton. Due to its jacquard weave, the apron has a lovely varied surface that gives it a relaxed look and underlines the nature-inspired motif. The apron is equipped with a handy pocket as well as a waist tie.
