Cross-Back Chef Apron, Olive with Tan Straps, Men and Women

Cross-Back Chef Apron, Olive with Tan Straps, Men and Women

$300 savings

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.

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.

Classic Chef Apron, Charcoal Black with Tan Straps, Men or Women

Shalonda Berry

Love the look and feel of this apron. Can't wait to show it off.

First One

Great fit! Great value! Will definitely buy another!

R. Swann
Good choice!

This apron will last my lifetime and if I could I would wear it all day every day, it’s that comfortable ! My biggest issue is that I have too many uses for it, gardening, cooking and in the painting studio, I will most likely buy another for painting in and keep this one for cooking, that was my original intent for purchase. Great fabric, it will wear well and the apron looks great on, flattering cut and crisp lines, very easy to use, super comfortable and doesn’t pull on my neck. Just what I was looking for.

Rooted Moon Artistry

I purchased two aprons for work and home. I am a ceramic artist and needed an apron that did not pull on my neck while working. This was perfect. The material is great quality, ideal for getting covered in clay! Also love all the color choices!
