An apron is designed to protect your clothes from substances that might splash them during an activity. They have been used for generations in the kitchen to protect clothing from stains from food or splashes from oil. At work, many trades require the wearing of a leather apron, such as welders, smiths or marshallers.

How to store my leather apron
After a good day of using your apron, it is best to store it by hanging it on a hook or hanger. Not only will the apron look like a work of art in your kitchen, bar, workshop or workplace, but it will retain its natural shape and avoid wrinkles.
Taking the apron on a trip? Roll the apron up and down. Do not fold the leather apron or you will get fold lines on your apron. If this happens, the fold lines will eventually disappear on their own. You can also gently iron the back of the leather to make the fold lines disappear.
How do I clean my leather apron?
With their unique impregnated coating, smooth leather aprons are very easy to clean. Food, grease, or dirt can be easily removed with a simple warm cloth and natural soap.
Do not use harsh chemicals such as horse saddle soap, cleaning solvents, oils, furniture waxes, varnishes, abrasive cleaners, detergents or ammonia on the leather apron. This will dissolve the coated protective layer, making the leather sticky and cracked. Try to avoid getting the leather wet and do not put the apron in the washing machine.
Our split leather aprons require more care: to clean them, head for terre de Sommières, a suede brush or even talcum powder.
If the leather is soaked, let it dry naturally at room temperature. Do not place the leather apron on a heat source to dry faster, or the leather will dry out. Treat your leather apron well and it will last a lifetime.
How do I care for my leather apron?
We recommend that you treat your leather apron with a leather protectant and your apron will stay soft and protected. Gently apply the leather protector once a month or after a thorough cleaning with a cloth or sponge. Leave it on for 15 minutes to allow the leather to soak up the product. Then gently wipe the apron with a clean cloth. This will effectively protect your leather apron and enhance its color!
How to wear a leather apron
Originally, aprons, especially leather aprons, were worn primarily by men: blacksmiths, stonecutters, butchers and barbers, as well as many other trades, all had their own apron style and color. In the 20th century, the apron was considered a garment worn by women in the kitchen.
Today, you are more likely to see an apron worn by a bearded, tattooed, muscular barista than by a woman in the kitchen. Men have embraced aprons, especially leather aprons, for working with food and drink.
The sight of a bartender wearing a leather apron is a sure sign of a hip or hipster bar. There are a number of different apron styles, but the most common is the full apron with a loop around the neck and ties at the waist, i.e. the bib apron. The apron should cover the top of your clothes, but in no way should it be restrictive. Cross the ties at the waist in the back and tie a knot in the front, not so tight that it's uncomfortable, but enough that the apron doesn't interfere with your work.
