why this product

Created by the combined forces of a designer, chef and caterer, these hand-cut and hand-sewn aprons are made from durable yet lightweight and comfortable denim fabric. Embodying the feel of everyday women's wear, the crossed back-straps ensure that the apron stays put while you are vigorously chopping, mixing, stirring and basting. Two patch pockets allow you to safely tuck away your recipe card or tasting spoon. A loop at the hip accommodates a dishcloth or other useful kitchen essentials. 

use & care

Wash dark denim separately. Hand wash or machine wash in cold water. 

production & design

Friends and schoolmates Adriana Kielder and Reiko Nakamura—one a designer; the other a designer, cook and caterer—combined their respective heritages and talents to create a line of cookware and kitchen clothing. These aprons were inspired by Adriana's grandmother’s vintage Dutch aprons. All of the items in their catalogue are hand-made by Adriana and Reiko, with the occasional help of good friends.
