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 design made from a 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 quality and craftsmanship.
