These brightly colored, whimsical aprons and oven mitts are sure to inspire culinary greatness while putting a smile on everyone’s face.
The creator of GrubDudz, Bonnie Bartos, has an impressive, yet eclectic, background, which ultimately led her to create these awesome items. Bonnie began her career in Healthcare over 20 years ago. She was a Physician’s Assistant (PA-C) and a Certified Diabetes Educator (CDE). Bonnie often worked with patients who had a low literacy level, had different learning styles, or spoke English as a second language, which inspired her to create education material that could be easily interpreted by anyone. She drew “pictograms” by hand that conveyed important medical instruction to her patients. These pictograms were published, and earned Bonnie an award from the American Association of Diabetes Educators.
Bonnie loved her career in healthcare, however she was missing a creative outlet. While browsing through a craft store, Bonnie happened upon some brightly colored vegetable print fabric, and decided she had to create something fun with this whimsical material. Bonnie created a shirt that she wore to a medical conference. The shirt garnered so much attention, from medical professionals and patients alike, and was a true conversation starter. It occurred to Bonnie that she might be on to something. She began collecting all sorts of fun food related fabric, and began to create numerous functional and amusing items. From this event, GrubDudz was born! Bonnie created the apron and oven mitt, which she currently sells at conferences and by word of mouth. The oven mitt is particularly unique as it is much longer than most others, and protects the whole forearm from heat.
Bonnie is excited to bring GrubDudz to the masses with the launch of her ecommerce site, GrubDudz.com. All items are 100% unique and still handmade by Bonnie in the United States. Over the years she has gathered an impressive inventory of beautiful and brightly colored food fabrics. Everything from fruits and vegetables to bacon and baked goods! Bonnie takes pride in hand selecting each piece of fabric and piecing them together in a quilt like fashion, producing a finished product that is truly stunning. She even makes her own buttons that look like food! All the products come in various food themes such as: fruits, vegetable, meat, or baked goods. If a potential customer has something specific in mind, Bonnie can be contacted directly. She loves to collaborate with her customers to create something one of a kind and special for each individual.
GrubDudz aprons and oven mitts make excellent gifts for the foodie, chef, or person who has everything. They are practical in use, but also aesthetically pleasing like no other apron on the planet. GrubDudz products could put a smile on anyone’s face! Bonnie knows how much joy her products bring to her customers. She’s ecstatic about the opportunity to be able to bring that same joy and excitement to people all over the USA.
