Holy Roller Products debuted at the 2018 CMN Show. A few years prior to that, we met a Catholic Franciscan Community (comprised of only Sisters at the time, but now is a Community of Sisters and Brothers) whose mission is to serve and feed the poor. These Franciscans host monthly neighborhood dinners and a weekly mobile food pantry on the west side of Chicago - one of the poorest neighborhoods in the city.
We volunteer at the Mission and were inspired to design aprons while cooking for, and feeding the neighborhood. We thought it would be fun to design Catholic aprons featuring different Saints doing various activities - either in the kitchen or related to preparing food, reflecting the loving mission of the Franciscan Community. Afterall, Saints were humans living on earth just like us, also doing everyday activities just like us, so who better to portray as models whom we can mimic and aspire to become! Featuring Saints on the aprons would also help celebrate their Feast Days and can lend itself to evangelizing and educating others.
Our very first design was of St. Thérèse of Lisieux. She is featured baking in a kitchen with a playful caption "Add a Little Flour", as she is known as the Little Flower of Jesus. Our other colorful and whimsical designs include St. Francis of Assisi, St. Anthony of Padua, Our Lady of Guadalupe, and many others. Our products expanded to other kitchen decor items such as kitchen towels, mugs, pot holders, oven mitts, and our famous "Holy Roller" rolling pin.
Let the Saints go marching into your kitchen with our Fresh and Flavorful kitchen décor!
