A collaborative effort between Kaufmann Mercantile and Brooklyn-based denim repair shop Kill Devil Hill, this apron was designed to help keep your work surfaces clean without the clutter of having to leave towels lying around.? The body of the apron is cut and sewn from 12-ounce denim, a medium weight fabric that’s sturdy but still pliable. With cotton-canvas neck and waist ties, the body can be folded and used as a half-apron just as easily as it can be worn at full-length. The detachable herringbone mess towel in front is fastened by two antique brass snap buttons, leaving a handsome embellishment once the cloth is removed. No pockets – other than the small one at the chest – means nothing to hold you down, making this piece particularly easy to throw on and take off in a hurry.? While created with baking or cooking in mind, you can use this versatile apron outside the kitchen, such as by the grill, or anywhere else you think things might get a bit messy. Wipe your hands and just keep on going.
As you work, use the attached herringbone towel to dry your hands. This cloth can be removed as you go to wipe down counters and clean spills, then either reattached to the apron or tossed in the laundry.? Like all Kill Devil Hill aprons, this piece was constructed with a nod to busy restaurant kitchens, so the fabric has been pre-shrunk and is ready to be washed on high heat and thrown into the dryer.
After working as a decorative painter, luxury store display window designer, hot rod shop owner and gas station attendant, Mary Brockman opened Kill Devil Hill in Brooklyn, New York, in 2008.? This apron is handmade from start to finish in the back of KDH’s storefront on Franklin Avenue, Greenpoint. Once the American-milled denim is delivered, it’s washed and dried on high heat so you don't have to worry about shrinkage. Next the fabric is cut, then ironed, and finally all the pieces are stitched together on Mary’s trusty Singer sewing machine.
Wear this hand-sewn apron while baking or cooking, cleaning or gardening. 12-ounce dark denim with removable herringbone towel attached by an antique brass snap. An exclusive collaboration between Kill Devil Hill and Kaufmann Mercantile.
