Check out all of our apron colors and styles

We're excited to offer our own classic chef's apron. And make no mistake, this is no run-of-the-mill apron. 

The soft, durable, 100% cotton fabric is produced on a 100 year-old handloom in my partner's hometown of Kannur, India. To achieve a natural feel, no starch is added to the yarn at the weaving stage. 

The classic bib style apron is as practical as it is good looking. Includes two large pockets below the waist for cooking utensils, cell phone and secret recipes. Features a blue ticking stripe embellishment. Two small pockets near the top hold pens and pencils. Neck strap is fully adjustable. Waist strap is long enough to tie in back or front.

Aprons are unisex. Models are wearing the Classic Bib apron size. Durable, stamped steel hardware.

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

100% cotton. 200 thread count. Machine wash cold, tumble dry low. Durable and incredibly affordable. We are now supplying these to top restaurant chefs around the country.

    Beautiful Product

    I love this apron! Very well made and extremely comfortable. The costumer service is excellent as well!

    Michael Mc
    My new favorite cookwear

    I love it! The texture and the color of the textile are just terrific, substantial without being stiff or heavy, a subdued shade of crimson that is nonetheless vibrant. The cross-back style is still easy to quickly remove and put right back on as needed, without any fussiness. I particularly look forward to wearing it this summer as it’s really nice not to have a strap against the back of your neck during tee-shirt weather. At just shy of 6’2”, I chose the tall style, but think the standard would have worked just as well. I’ve definitely got maximum coverage, but wouldn’t foresee the issue of having to tie this too high around your waist as happens with some other unisex aprons of this style for someone who is sorta (but not hecka) tall. Functional pockets with sturdy steams are also a huge plus. Getting ready to send a couple of these as gifts!

    The greatest and most-bestest apron that has ever been aproned.

    Fabric feels very durable as well as the straps.
