About the product 

Californian–based artist Ed Ruscha has designed an apron exclusively for House of Voltaire. The apron features the artist's original recipe for Cactus Omelette, the making of which has become something of a ritual for Ruscha when staying at his desert home close to the Joshua Tree National Monument.
