For those who prefer a vegan choice we have sourced some amazing cork for our straps. Explore the site to see that each of our aprons has a cork option.
Here's our denim Street apron with cork neck strap and waist ties. The tough 10oz indigo denim is soft but very durable, the cork is flexible and robust, and the quality metal fittings are produced in a British foundry that holds a Royal Warrant. Our products are built to last using the finest materials.
Attached with heavy-duty metal poppers, on strong double layer corners, the cork straps can be removed in seconds making the apron fully washable. The pockets are reinforced with our branded antique finish brass rivets for extra durability.
Our cork comes from centuries old forests in Portugal where cork harvesting is a skill passed down through families and supports a village community. Cork is extremely sustainable, the bark is peeled away and then the cork is carefully extracted by very highly skilled harvesters. The trees are in no way damaged – the cork is naturally renewable and grows back after nine years – preserving the forest in it’s pristine entirety, and enabling perpetual harvesting with no damage to the forest or ecosystem.
With the change to metal screw caps for wine bottles the cork industry is starting to struggle and the people who rely on it for their livelihood need our support.
