As the worlds trends return to the basics of hand-crafted workmanship, Witloft brings you handmade leather aprons. Whether you are one for the woodshed, master of the BBQ or culinary virtuoso of the house; a barista in the making or just like to get your hands a little dirty; Wifloft aprons are extraordinarily durable, robust and magnificent to behold and are for anyone who professionally or at home has a passion for hand-crafted and the artisan style.
The aprons are adjustable around the neck loop and with the waist tie.
The authentic Witloft aprons are made of high quality vegetable tanned saddle leather; Flexible yet very hardy. The leather used is of Dutch origin and the aprons are made by hand – giving each apron a unique look. As the leather lives and breathes, the aprons develop a rustic patina with time and wear.
The Witloft Story
Two years ago, Witloft started in a little garden shed in Amsterdam. It’s a very cliché story, but the founder, Frank, came up with Witloft because he needed an apron and thought that the already existing aprons could be so much better. At that time he followed a workshop about making furniture and wore an apron to protect my clothes and himself. As soon as he put on the apron he got into this ‘work mode’. Frank felt motivation and passion and thought, this apron can be so much better, more beautiful and more functional. It was in that moment, Frank started designing, fine-tuning and producing the Witloft brand. Frank made the first Witloft apron out of a rough piece of leather, which was great for personal use. Now, however, Witloft artisans hand-craft the exquisite leather aprons now available to purchase.
Leather Apron Care
Following these guides and tips will ensure your apron remain at its most pristine for the longest time.
- DO NOT use abrasive or harsh chemical cleaners – This will scratch the leather and possibly taint or remove the tanning/colour
- Remove heavy soiling sooner rather than later – Avoiding a build-up of dirt and other matter will maintain the finish for longer
- New leather is naturally a little stiff – Wearing it and using it often will soon have the leather more supple and pliant
- With use and wear, your apron will inevitably collect its share of scratches and marks – Using thin layers of leather use waxes on heavy scratches with help prevent deterioration
