Europe premium apron

A premium apron (measures approx length 94 x width 72cm) with adjustable neck loop and extra long ties that can be fastened in front or behind. Will fit adults of all shapes and sizes!

This poignant quotation on this apron is from Devotions upon Emergent Occasions, a 1624 work by the English poet John Donne. It’s a reminder of our connection to the rest of humanity and that we cannot thrive when are isolated from others – a particularly important message in a political era where the rhetoric of division and isolation seems increasingly common. 

Here’s the full verse:

No man is an island
Entire of itself
Every man is a piece of the continent
A part of the main. 
If a clod be washed away by the sea
Europe is the less.
As well as if a promontory were.
As well as if a manor of thy friend's
Or of thine own were:
Any man's death diminishes me
Because I am involved in mankind
And therefore never send to know for whom the bell tolls; 
It tolls for thee.

Go on, say ‘I love EU’ with this pro-European and pro-humanity political gift!
