Kitchen Aprons have been around for centuries. Timeless, they have become real assets for amateur and professional cooks, protecting them from stains and splashes. Sleeveless and comfortable, they allow greater freedom of movement than a kitchen jacket or blouse.
In recent years, Aprons have become much more than kitchen clothes: they are now real fashion garnments. More than a protection, an Apron is a kitchen outfit and an essential cooking apparel to wear. Customizable, stylish, lightweight, striped, patterned, embroidered, the Apron comes in many different ways.
What are the different types of professional aprons?
- The Bib Apron
The Bib Apron is worn with an adjustable neck strap and an adjustable tie at the waist. It is regularly worn by cooks as a chef apron. The textile, often made of cotton, sometimes polyester, is strong. It can also be made of denim. It is practical and comfortable and can have a large central pocket to store some kitchen utensils. It is easily machine washable. It is a real work apron for the a lot of restaurants, bakeries and coffee shops and it is often part of the uniform, like the white apron.
- The Waist Apron or Half Apron
Strapless, the Waist Apron, also known as a half apron, is often a favorite among waiters and bartenders because it allows complete freedom of movement for the upper body. In fact, the tie is at the waist and the apron goes down to the knees or half of the thigh. It often goes with pockets to allow waiters to store pens and notebooks.
- The Leather Apron
The Leather Apron is a particularly sturdy Apron, designed to be tough and offer maximum protection to its user. Generally, it is used by blacksmiths or welders, who are required to work with high temperature or sharp materials. The Leather Apron is a real work clothing but also a personal protective equipment.
- The Waterproof Apron
The Waterproof Apron can be very useful especially for butchers, who work with meat and can receive blood splashes, as well as fishmongers. On a classic apron, this would be a stain, whereas on this one, the blood will not stick and will just slide off. It will even be very easy to clean it by sprinkling it with a little water. The Butcher's Apron makes washing easy and fast.
- The Hairdresser's or Barber's Apron
The Barber's Apron (or Hairdresser's Apron) is very popular with this profession since it is designed to make work easier and allows you to have all the necessary tools to carry around, thanks to its many pockets. It is a work outfit.
