About Our Aprons
All aprons are 100% handmade with exclusive developed fabric and fabric remnants.
They come with brass hardware and clasps, both coated in Zamak - an anti-allergic material that respects the environment, avoids rust and has excellent resistance and strength, giving the metal a bold look and a lifespan longer than any other zinc can offer.
These are cotton webbing straps made of more than 90% cotton.
The body of our aprons is composed of two parts that are put together by a seam on the waist. This seam avoids the “balloon effect” around the waist that most other aprons in the market have.
The split-leg opening lets you move freely without that feeling of being in a straightjacket or evening gown, even if the apron is too tall in you. And all the aprons come with adjustable straps, so you can make them fit better to your height.
Yes. Our aprons are around 26" wide per 36" tall, being the upper part around 14" tall and the lower 20" tall.
Aprons made of raw fabric will shrink more than a common industrial washed fabric, so you can consider that your apron will settle at around 33" tall after the first wash.
The aprons are around 36" tall, so the split-leg part starts at around 28".
TIP: If after adjusting the straps you still find the apron is too long at the bottom, you can also hem the lower part to fit you better.
For Cross-Back and Cargo Models, just do the following:
- Hook the straps to the apron.
- Cross the straps on your back.
- Pass the straps through the D-rings.
- Tie the straps the way you prefer.

Wash your apron before using it for the first time.
The first few times you should wash it by itself to avoid the dye bleeding onto your other clothes.
Why do I need to wash before using the apron?
We recommend washing before using it for the first time because they are made of raw fabrics - they didn’t go through any chemical or mechanical wash. As a result, some of their dye can bleed onto the clothes you wear underneath. Besides that, they get softer after the first wash, so it feels more comfortable.
Tip: to test if the dye will bleed onto your clothes, just rub the fabric into some white rag. If nothing happens, then you might not need to wash it before using it for the first time.
Removing stains from your apron:
Not all the stains can get off your apron, but for the most common ones you can try using this:
Warm Salt Water - for fresh stains, still not dry (like fresh tomato sauce, wine or coffee):
- Mix about 1tbs of salt in ½ cup of water (increase proportionally)
- Soak stained fabric in the salt water for around 3 min
- Rub the fabric against itself under cold water
Alcohol or Vinegar - for dry stains (like ink)
- Dab rubbing alcohol onto the stain
- Wait some minutes so the alcohol can penetrate the fabric and react with the stain
- Dry the stain using white paper towels or a cloth that has been dampened in either alcohol or water
We’re working on it. So far the materials we have found are too synthetic, which means their liquid-proof, but flame-attractive. We’d rather keep our customers safe, so for now we’re sticking with materials that are not 100% liquid-proof, but are easier to clean: coated finish (make it more difficult to absorb liquid) and special fabrics (quick dry).mailDescription">email@example.com and we’ll answer pronto.
