I acquired it for some time in the late 2000s and have worn it every day since for tasks involving metallurgy. As a goldsmith, my knees are constantly in contact with hot, sharp and small things. Having a large apron without pockets to protect me and catch things was infinitely helpful. We decided to produce these aprons for other blacksmiths to enjoy as they do we store these aprons at our jewelry school for our students to use. It was important to design something protective and easy to wear.Each apron has adjustable straps for easy fit and use. If a piece of ppe is not comfortable, then you are more likely to jump it while going down to your task. We have a heavy apron that is not too heavy. Since these are designed for our students, these aprons are embossed with our simple diamond marquee logo on the chest for emily Marquis designs - Marquis jewelry academy, but we felt that leaving our name out of these aprons allowed them to become yours. We also added the diamond logo to the cotton twill strip for the cut.
We offer this apron in 3 starting colors, and no frills. You can order it in the original rust, black or burgundy. Please let us know if you are interested in upgrades or additions like pockets so we can consider that in our next iterations. This item is made of leather.
