1. a garment made of leather covering the front of the body and tied at the waist, for protecting one's clothing.
After crafting many custom leather aprons for blacksmiths, jewellers, knife makers and chefs I have designed 3 different styles that are in my range now permanently.
One style made of extremely strong buffalo hides is perfect for blacksmiths, and any heavy workshop needs using hot implements and robust tools. The leather is very firm and will need to be worn in but will be around for a seriously long time if looked after. The strap formation will fit the largest of men or women with ease which I have found very necessary in this line of work.
The second and third designs are made from softer oiled leather better for chefs or jewellers with finer work and smaller tools. These still will of course last a very long time and will look even better with age, a few stains and experience as we all do.
I personally wear one of these and admire its beauty daily with all its now scratches and experienced look. Of course, I could remove all this with my beeswax leather conditioner but love the character it has created, which is why I love working with leather.
The quality of these products has a very distinct Sunshine Barossa Australia feel. The name has become well known for its quality and craftsmanship.

Disclosure for all leather products:
Here at Sunshine Barossa Australia, we seek to celebrate what nature has created. Please remember when purchasing this Sunshine Barossa product that your piece is made from natural hide and there may be slight differences between the product pictured and the product you receive as no two natural hides are the same. There may be slight variations in appearance, colour, tone, markings and pattern. There may also be small lines (scars) or other markings on a natural hide. These variations are not faults or defects, they are a part of the unique charm of a natural hide product.
- There are a few things to remember about leather products. As leather is a precious material that comes from an animal, each hide will vary in the finish.
- The vegetable tanned leather and semi-vegetable tanned leather is washed which exposes the natural grain and variation in each hide. We don't cut around these minor imperfections; we love them and often use some of the imperfections to create the uniqueness of your bag.
- All leather has scars from the animals' life journeys, as do we humans, and this makes every hide we use unique.
- With time and wear, leather becomes even more beautiful and will quite often mould to your body shape when worn a lot.
- To maintain the beauty of your handcrafted leather goods, we recommend rubbing in with a soft cloth before use and every couple of months the 'Sunshine Barossa Australia Bees Wax Leather Conditioner' to treat the product, help stop the leather drying out, staining and just keeping it looking wonderful to increase your products life span.
- If the leather is a lighter shade of colour, spray a leather protective product on the outside, and inside if the bag is not lined which will add extra protection against colours transferring on you nude leathers (eg.denim)
- Do not put leather pieces on the ground or rub against abrasive surfaces.
- Be aware that some colours may transfer onto clothing. This can't be helped with the dying process of each hide.
