Traditional canvas apron
The origin of Japanese apron is said to date back to the 15th century (* there are various theories).
It is called "Maekake MAEKAKE" or "Maetare MAETARE" because it hangs in front of the body, and it has been useful for practical use because it protects the waist of workers and prevents tearing and injury of clothing. ..
It became the current "shape" in the Edo period, and the "yago" was dyed from the Meiji period, and it has come to be used as uniforms and advertisements.
In Toyohashi, Aichi Prefecture, which is the number one producer of apron in Japan, it spread explosively in the 1950s and 1970s after the war, and Mr. Shusuke Sugie, who is also the chairman of the Toyohashi Sail Maekake Promotion Association, said, "When there are many, 10,000 a day. There was a time when the sheets were shipped. "
With the economic growth of Japan, the production of apron has increased rapidly, and starting with sake breweries nationwide, companies and companies in all industries such as rice shops, miso shops, soy sauce shops, fertilizer shops, food makers, etc. An apron with the store name and company name was made and spread all over the country.
It is a simple shape with a red and white string attached to a rectangular fabric thickly woven with cotton thread, but various wisdoms of the ancestors are hidden in this.
