A date with the apron

Are aprons still used today? Of course!

Not only in the past, but also at present time aprons are worn by different people: at work as well as in everyday life. Whether in the garden, while cooking, at folk festivals or in leisure time: the apron is far from being extinct. It often has a personal and emotional meaning for its wearers.

Women, men and children own aprons. They have different functions: They protect clothing, grant prestige, are part of a work uniform or serve as decoration.

The exhibition shows the diversity of an everyday garment. It was created at the Chair of Comparative Cultural Studies at the University of Regensburg under the direction of Esther Gajek in cooperation with the Stadtmuseum Deggendorf.
