A coastal themed child's apron in natural white organic cotton twill with a cute seal pup swimming in the sea. This would make a great gift for a little garden or kitchen helper! Hand printed and hand made in Wales. It has a pocket approx 16 x 25cms. With an adjustable neck tie, and perfect for messy play.

Grey seals are born and nurtured on land for the first few weeks of their life. At about 4 or 5 weeks old they take their first swim in the sea and learn to catch their own fish. Large eyes allow them to see well in dark murky waters and highly sensitive ears are important for locating prey, even blind seals can easily catch prey. Grey seals’ hands and feet are formed into webbed flippers. They use their strong rear flippers to propel themselves through the water, while using their tail to steer. They also have powerful shoulders which enable them to haul themselves onto steep and slippery rocks. Around 40% of the global population of grey seals live around the British coast.

This has been designed and hand printed by me in my workshop in West Wales. Ethically produced, from cotton manufacture to finished product, printed with environmentally friendly inks and completely machine washable. I mix the inks in-house and hand pull each print, so slight variations are possible and are a sign of hand-craftsmanship.The print has a smooth finish on the fabric making it super comfortable and soft to touch. The design is equally suitable for boys and girls and so can be passed on when it has been outgrown.

As well as making lovely and useful things for everyday lives PearPrint aims to inspire children and adults alike to marvel at the natural world close to us and cherish it so that future generations can also enjoy it.

One size, to fit children roughly 3 to 7 years old.

Frequently Asked Questions

Welcome to PearPrint!

I create all of the print designs for the garments and bags in my shop and hand print them myself using a screen printing method. I use environmentally friendly inks and natural materials which are safe and gentle on children's skin. The prints are fixed with heat and are machine washable, care instructions will accompany each item. The items are all ethically produced, from cotton manufacture to finished product, and most are organic.

I mix the inks in-house and hand pull each print, so slight variations are possible and are a sign of hand-craftsmanship.

Gift wrapping and packaging

Items will come with a PearPrint swing tag label and wrapped in tissue paper. They will then be boxed in a mailing box and wrapped in brown paper. I try to keep all my packaging easily recyclable.

If you would like me to send it directly to a gift recipient I can gift wrap and omit the sales receipt (and make sure there are no prices on the label). Just message me when you make your order.

Care instructions

I recommend turning the garment inside out and machine washing on a cool cycle, 30 or 40 degrees C, but of course you can hand wash if you want to.

The inks that I use for screen printing are translucent and are absorbed into the fabric, leaving a soft finish and not a raised plasticky one. Any residue left from the printing process will wash out in the first wash or two making the finish even softer. No colour will be transferred from the print to anything else.

The dark coloured bags with sewn on pockets I recommend spot cleaning with a sponge.

Care instructions will come with the item on it’s PearPrint swing tag.


I hope that you are thrilled with your purchase but should there be any problem please contact me immediately.
If you have simply changed your mind you can return it to me for a refund within 14 days of receiving it. The item must be in it's original condition and with the label. I am also happy to exchange items. Unfortunately I am not able to refund postage.
