A Closer Look: The Apron

On the heels of developing our Knife Roll, we began to get requests for aprons, from friends in the restaurant, floral, and woodworking industries, as well as home cooks and artists. As with all of our designs, we began development by collaborating with the users. 

We asked what is missing from what is available to them, what do they love, what would they improve upon. We paid attention to how aprons are used, where the hands naturally want to go, how best to carry and use tools. Function informs all of our design decisions. 


The apron pockets took shape and placement by taking note of actual use. Pockets are deep and generous, where they need to be, and compact where a small item is needing placement. The added utility pockets allow tools to be effortlessly stowed with the simple lowering of a hand. When the pockets aren’t in use, they lay seamlessly against the body for an overall a clean appearance. We included a towel strap so that all desired tools are handy.


The intentional cross over strap design keeps all points of contact evenly distributed and the fit exceptionally comfortable. We had a few skeptics at first, only to hear it is now a favorite feature. No more nagging pressure at the back neck, during the longest work day. The straps allow the wearer to slip the apron over the head and freely adjust to the exact fit desired, on any given day. Whether cinched in for a snug fit, or hung loosely, the apron never impedes movement. 


We achieved a beautiful product that is filled with function, void of anything unnecessary, comfortable to wear, and loved by our collaborators.
