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.

By far the best apron in my collection. I am about to purchase a few more.
The fabric on these are wonderful - thick and sturdy but soft. It's very functional and looks great as well! My 6'1" husband appreciates the Tall version.
I got this apron for my partner for Christmas and he loves it! It is awesome quality and such a great company to support. I would definitely buy from them again and recommend to anyone looking to get a quality product.
This is just what I had been looking for and I love it! It is quality made...and it fits me! No more struggling to tie behind my back! Thanks!
We love the new aprons. Great for everyday kitchen use!
