If you spend a lot of time in the kitchen, you might prefer a Cross-Back style apron. Instead of hanging onyour neck, the Cross-Back straps extend over your shoulders and cross in back. The weight of the apron is more evenly distributed.

It’s easy to adjust a Cross-Back to your liking by gently pulling the apron up or down before tying. There is no hardware. Our Standard Size Cross-Back is 34"L x 30"W. 

The soft, durable, 100% cotton apron fabric is produced on 100 year-old handlooms(!) in my partner's hometown of Kannur, India. Power looms go to sleep at night dreaming of creating fabric this beautiful.

The apron is as practical as it is good looking. Includes two large pockets below the waist for cell phone, cooking utensils, and secret recipes.

Two small pockets near the top hold pens and pencils. Waist strap is long enough to tie in back or front. Features a blue ticking stripe embellishment on the pocket.

Each apron comes packaged in Reluctant Trading printed cloth tape. Ideal for gift giving.

We supply our aprons to top restaurants around the country.

Absolute joy of an apron!

Reluctant Threads did what few companies ever do; they towed that thin line between value and quality. The apron is made of high-quality material and provides everything I need in a professional kitchen from coverage across the torso, hips, and legs, convenient sharpie and pen access, to straps that are comfortable and grippy, which ensures they stay in place throughout my shift. So happy with the purchase that I told my wife I needed to add a new color to the rotation, which at that point would bring my total for two Reluctant Threads aprons to what other companies charge for one of theirs. I highly recommend their chef's apron for anyone from home cooks to caterers to pro chefs.

Timeless styling and great vibe!

Great color, design, and usefulness! You seem like laid back, sort of wry people behind this design, so that adds a lot to it. I do some social media modeling so you may see me in this apron!

Lovely

Great color and I love the little details liked the striped tag on the pocket, and the khaki straps. Nice durable material but soft and not too heavy and not too stiff at all.
