Known in Japan as “maekake,” traditional craftsmen’s aprons have been used for over 200 years. This Workshop Apron is made in Japan from 100% cotton on shuttle looms that have been used for over 100 years. The looms weave richly textured, dense fabric, creating a durable but soft apron that is suited for everyday use, from your kitchen to your garden. The traditional indigo aprons are woven, sewn and hand-dyed in low-power, ecology factories by Japanese craftspeople who have inherited century-old techniques. Details of this Workshop Apron include selvedge, a fringed edge and a handy side pocket.
