Take a big weight, bright indigo blue heavy selvedge chambray from Italy, transform it into an high function apron. You have the best of both worlds in the Italy Heavy Selvedge Chambray Apron. Sewn right in the USA for $46.
Italy has a special touch with fabric, almost like a unique fingerprint. In our experience, it finds a way of carving out unique colors and textures that are just a bit different than other mills in Japan and the USA. This unique character is perfectly showcased here. It starts with a rare composition - a big weight, 10oz selvedge chambray. You don't see many mills going this heavy in selvedge form and results in a wonderfully dense fabric, perfect for protection while you're cooking or getting messy in the shop. The classic color-on-white chambray composition highlights an intensely grainy surface that's totally different from a twill. Finally, the warp is dyed to a vivid, pure blue color. It holds up well to the crisp white weft and creates a an overall look that's both old-school and lively. A bold blue selvedge ID caps it off. Beautiful fabric like this isn't just for pants.
Whether you are a bar back, a grill master, or you just plain like to tinker this apron is for you. The two front pockets mirror those you would find on our jeans and are trimmed with the selvedge ID. The upper utility pocket is marked with a Gustin leather patch. Finally, the solid-brass hardware allows you to adjust the fit to your liking while adding a bit of flash. We love this apron and we are sure you will too.
