This apron gets softer with every use. Great for cooking with a campfire while taking advantage of the goodness and strength of the single piece of leather.
Immersing yourself in nature is a great way to spend your time. You set up your tent, chop wood, and make a fire. The more times you do it, the more you'll enjoy it. The same is true for all the hassles you encounter that you normally won't find in your everyday life.
This apron is made of a single piece of cowhide leather, which is known for its durability and heat resistance. We achieved minimalist functionality while paying close attention to the materials, design, and sewing details. Its simple and timeless design gives it long-lasting utility. The leather also stands out for its aging process, making this apron a pleasure to use.
The color and texture all change with long-term use. Its natural transformation is pleasant to the human senses.
And while one should treat good things with care, it's no fun if it takes too much of your time. We hope this product will be your personal cooking buddy, with the dirt and scratches forming its character.
Leather: Japanese chrome-tanned velour split leather (raised leather)
Hardware: All brass (eyelet)
Shoulder strap: Cotton (oil lantern core)
Back cross parts: Japanese vegetable-tanned leather (oil leather), double layered
SKLO has been developing leather products specialized for camping since the spring of 2021. I wanted to create a product that would be the face of the company and had various projects in mind. I once visited a wholesaler to purchase leather. Their representative wore an aged leather apron, and I ended up having a deep and lively conversation with him. He was also a camping enthusiast. While his aprons were dirty from long use, it gave them a one-of-a-kind feel, softened and fitted to his body. I felt that raised velour leather was cooler and more flavorful than the silver-sided leather commonly used for leather goods. This product is the result of my heartfelt desire to create a camp apron that can endure heavy usage and allow people to truly enjoy camping.
Notes・Since leather is a natural material, there are individual differences in color, blood streaks, wrinkles, scars, and so on between products. Please understand that these are all signs of life and the charm of the leather.
・The back side of the apron may contain rough areas (will not hinder your use).
・There may be some slight changes in specifications and design during the development process.
・Although we have reproduced the colors shown on the product page as faithfully as possible, the colors may appear different depending on the environment.
