We are beyond honored to have our founder, Ellen, and H&B featured in the January 2015 issue of Entrepreneur.

As an American-built, American-made startup, H&B is nothing if not entrepreneurial in the most enthusiastic sense of the word.

We love that the article features the hustle and bustle of the humble beginnings of our ampersand-embellished aprons that leading chefs and restaurants hold near and dear today.

Check out the article on Entrepreneur’s website and stay tuned for the new pieces mentioned coming up in 2015!

Martha Stewart is as American as apple pie, and she’s taken the helm of a new initiative aimed at changing the face of business as usual across the country.

Known as American Made, this curated collaboration “spotlights the maker, supports the local, and celebrates the handmade.”

H&B's fearless leader, Ellen, was one of the speakers at Martha Stewart’s 2014 American Made Summit in New York City, where she represented H&B loud and proud on “The New American Dream: Meet the Makers” panel.

Ellen highlighted the details that go into each and every H&B apron and joined other panelists who shared what has transformed them from makers into entrepreneurs.

Check out the highlights on Martha’s blog and the H&B wares in the American Made store on eBay.
