Bespoke Leather Apron
If you're looking for the ultimate handmade bespoke leather apron then look no further.
We design and measure all the details to your requirements and advise on specifics for your individual need. We use the finest Italian leather to craft an apron made unique to you. All of the metalware comes from a Walsall foundry that has been producing high quality buckles since 1832 and holds a Royal Warrant of Appointment.
Chef Chris Burt from The Mytton and Mermaid Hotel requested a leather apron that was comfortable to wear even for long hours spent standing in a hot kitchen. We made him a cross-back apron which fits close to the body and distributes the weight evenly, the leather also acting as a heat shield from the hot stoves. Chris wanted a low bib to hang his plating tweezers from and deep pockets for keeping tongs and other chef essentials close to hand. The supple leather will withstand hot spills yet will easily wipe clean for years of service.
The apron was carefully hand skived to enable beautifully turned stitched edges to add strength and stop the leather from curling. The cross-back straps were precisely edged and softened to give the best most comfortable fit and the rear belt had eyelet holes for extra strength and durability, all attached using nickel plated brass buckles made to the highest standard.
Finally the embossed Risdon & Risdon logo patch was added, so that in years to come it will prove its authenticity of British handmade craftsmanship.
Chris' verdict, "Happiest chef in the world right now."
