Ever wonder what happens to your husbands dress shirts that you gave to Goodwill? Chances are it was shipped to Haiti to be sold there. The selling of our donated clothing in Ghana alone is an 80 million dollar a year industry! This apron was made from button down shirts gathered from these markets. It is sewn by a women's cooperative in the plateau of Haiti - a very rural village where the production of Liz Alig clothing provides a much needed source of income for families that have little opportunities in this remote part of Haiti.
Each apron is made with assorted plaid and striped dress shirt fabric, and features front ruffles, waist and neck ties, a gathered skirt, ruffled hem and side pocket. Because it is made from recycled materials each apron is 100% unique.
