About Us

Stalwart (adjective)

“loyal, reliable, and hard-working”

The passion for aprons was born in Holland in 1997. In the last 19 years the business developed a lot, but the love and passion for handcrafted aprons never faded but only became stronger when it was passed  from father to son.


Today, Stalwart specialises in handcrafted leather aprons made in a atelier in the heart of London. Quality is our highest goal, that’s why our leather is selected from the finest source specifically designed for aprons.


Stalwart leather aprons are tough with a distinctive character. They are perfect for restaurant and bar staff, food preparation, home cooking, BBQ’s or protection for craft activities.

Why Buy A Stalwart Leather Apron?

Prior to the leather being used to create our bespoke Stalwart aprons, it already has a beautiful antique and rustic character. With the natural grain and delicately aged characteristics ,the leather that we use is of the highest quality.


Our skins are selected for their natural features such as neck wrinkles, scratches and branding etc. These features can then be found incorporated into your own Stalwart leather apron. Handcrafted in our London studio we ensure that the finished piece is of the highest quality.

Cleaning / Maintenance

As with all great things, your Stalwart leather apron requires little maintenance to keep it in tip top shape. The vintage leather is coated to ensure it is water resistant meaning any spillages, including coffee, red wine or oil can be simply wiped off with a lukewarm cloth and natural soap if necessary.


In order to dry your leather apron, hang it in an open space. Never let wet leather dry on a heat source. Do not use aggressive cleaning products. To keep you leather apron in good condition it is recommended to use leather conditioner once a month or after an intense cleaning.


Our handcrafted aprons are full of character and only get better with wear. Our leather aprons become smoother with age and mold to the wearer’s body. The durability of Stalwart’s leather aprons makes their use incredibly versatile.


Our leather aprons are worn in restaurants and food shops, as well as by barbers, market sellers and even blacksmiths. You will only need to purchase one apron per staff member, there are no cleaning costs and will not need to be replaced year after year.


We offer a bespoke customisation service at Stalwart, branding your business logo on the front of your leather apron. Unlike a stamping service offered for fabric aprons, this customisation is built to last.


You can choose your own unique colour to complement your business. Stalwart aprons will give your business the extra character and style it deserves in order to ensure you stand out.
