Today's wonderful human is Ellen Bennett, founder of Hedley & Bennett!
Ellen is a successful entrepreneur/business woman who makes beautiful made-in-America (Los Angeles, to be exact) aprons. While, she started making aprons for the food industry, if you are a person of any craft whatsoever, one of her aprons will make a great addition to your standard "toolset". I first came across H&B when I was in the market for a new apron and just happened upon the website - and loved what I saw. After I read more about the company and found out that the founder/owner is a woman - I knew that I had to have Ellen as a Human.
On one of our recent trips to Southern California, we stopped by H&B headquarters in the Los Angeles Fashion District and did this shoot with Ellen. I loved how colorful and well-lit their offices were, and these shots reflect the amazing vibe that Ellen has built with H&B. Ellen told us that all of her aprons were made in the building, and as we walked through, sure enough we saw some of the lovely tailors who were sawing them and putting them together. I am always so excited to see another woman's success in business - and Ellen's passion was very evident. Thank you for participating in my series Ellen - you definitely have an another member of the apron squad!
You can learn more about H&B on the website, as well as follow along with the Bonafide Apron Squad Adventures!
