Our [ 5 in 1 A Model ] Customizable Apron with removable pockets that can be worn separately, or left or right with leather ring and removable leather pocket for left or right handed.
The body of our aprons is composed of two parts that are put together by a seam on the waist. This seam avoids the balloon effect around the waist that most other aprons in the market have.
All the aprons are 100% hand made with 80% cotton and 20% polyester [250 G/M2] strong twill fabrics, developed for the JÖRD collection. The powerful ULTRAPEL™ protection is a dual action patented by Doubletex® that repels water and stains, while leaving the fabrics feeling and staying, breathing and comfortable.
Stain-repellent textiles are not a new concept. What JÖRD does differently, is apply the technology to woven fabrics and make them more resistant and Foolproof.
The technology is based on a finish which protects the fabric from staining. This is achieved by blocking the stain and preventing it from penetrating into the fabric. The process forms a coating on the individual fibers within the fabric and thus protects it from spills, stains, whether oil or water based, wet or dry - even tougher stains like blood or oil.
The colors have been specially developed for the JÖRD collection and our fabrics are environmentally friendly.
Quality is our highest goal, that's why our leather is from finest collection and specially selected for the details for our aprons.
They come with brass hardware and clasps, both coated in Zamak - an anti-allergic material that respects the environment, avoids rust and has excellent resistance and strength, giving the metal a bold look and a lifespan longer than any other zinc can offer.
The straps are manufactured according to our specifications with the colors specially developed for the JÖRD collection. You have the choice between the striped webbing of the BOURBON collection or the webbing matching the color and fabric of your apron. 80% cotton and 20% Polyester made adjustable straps, a handmade leather clasp on the shoulders and pockets of this apron that snaps on and off for washing and fully adjustable for easy fit.

We think the most important Value of Kickstarter platform — It's not about money — It’s Community.
The Kickstarter community is more than another way of raising funds. In connecting creators and entrepreneurs directly with customers and funders, it transforms the market for early-stage fundraising into a more democratic, open one. Creators can directly reach out to customers and communities and they understand the value that's associated in the creative process of the creator.
This is a great opportunity to benefit mutually. By pledging for one of our apron, you'll not only help a small business grow, but you'll also receive an awesome hand made apron at a fraction of its normal price!
