Our Art Smocks are made in the USA. Unfortunately, they are too well made and the manufacturer has decided to discontinue them because he cannot compete with the inexpensive, low quality smocks from China. These art smocks are 100% cotton and they are machine washable. There are two front pockets that snap closed - these front pockets also have slots stitched into the fronts of them; for use as brush and/or pencil holders. There is one breast pocket and two reinforced slits in the side, so you can easily put your hands into your pants pockets without having to pull up the entire smock. Three sturdy snaps close the smocks down the front. All of them are designed with 3/4 length sleeves, so you have complete use of your hands. These are terrific for artists of all ages and sizes! They are very comfortable and the cotton is very soft. We are going to miss this line. Get them while they last!!!
