In many Spanish-speaking Latinx cultures, La Jefa is a term meaning “a woman boss” used to address a matriarchal figure, whether a mother, community leader, or woman business owner. For Mother’s Day, BlueCut teamed up with La Cocina to create an apron that honors women who are the “boss” of their professional and home kitchens, with 20% of proceeds from the sale of each apron benefiting the non-profit organization’s food hall.
Located in San Francisco's Tenderloin neighborhood, the La Cocina’s Municipal Marketplace offers a safe, low-risk, and low-cost path for low-income women-of-color and immigrant women entrepreneurs to start a successful food business.
20% of proceeds from the sale of each apron benefits La Cocina’s Municipal Marketplace.
La Jefa features:
- 100% cotton denim apron in gray and indigo
- Blush accent stitching, antique brass hardware, and navy blue and blush cotton straps
- Digitally printed to mimic embroidery of La Jefa and La Cocina’s iconic bird holding a spoon, signifying the "flight" of these businesses launching independently and in pursuit of economic freedom
- Two large waist pockets and one small chest pocket
I have several Blue Cut aprons and like the others this exceeded my expectations. The apron is generously cut and has pockets where they need to be. The design is unique and makes me feel like a “ boss”in my home kitchen.
I appreciate that part of the proceeds support La Cocina’s Municipal Marketplace.
