Leather aprons for butchers and meat sellers

Pride in your trade

As a butcher, you’ll be proud of being a member of such a traditional and skilled trade, with English Butcher’s Guilds dating from as far back as 1272. And to perform your job to your best abilities, you’ll need a protective heavy-duty apron you can count on.

Professional look | We’ve spoken to butchers to find out what they’re looking for in an apron: they all wanted a product that fits well, with adjustable straps around the waist and neck, plus a strong waterproof coating which resists cuts, soiling and splashes. Not forgetting a pleasing vintage look for the sort of character that makes you stand out from the crowd (and the supermarkets!).

Workwear | If you’re preparing good-quality meat, you’ll need to protect yourself with a top-quality apron, so we have developed three designs for you to choose from. Our Butcher’s aprons are made from 2mm-thick leather, developed in collaboration with our tannery to be light and flexible but still give you the great protection you need against everything a butcher’s life throws at you.

Why choose a Stalwart Craft's butcher's apron

Not only must your meat products look appealing, but the server behind the counter should appear smart and professional as well. And you’ll know that when working with meat, nothing is more important than ensuring your environment is sterile.

I work as a meat cutter, and I’m absolutely loving my new apron! So far its holding up splendidly even with getting protein juices from pork, chicken, and beef on it in large quantities. The cross strap does wonders in eliminating the neck pain I would get from other aprons. Another bonus was the super quick shipping to the states. Thank you so much Stalwart Crafts, you’ve got my loyalty for life

Hygienic and protective

Our leather is coated with an extra protective layer, making it easy to clean time after time by simply wiping down and using an anti-bacterial spray. The apron will look smart and professional, day after day.

Looking good for longer

Due to the frequent washing, cotton aprons will wear out and the colour and branding fade. Stalwart Crafts leather aprons, however, improve with age. The leather moulds to the shape of the body and looks more authentic and characterful the longer you wear it, with your branding remaining sharp and clear. In fact, we asked several butchers how much they spent on cleaning and replacing regular cotton aprons and, based on ten staff members, we calculated that you could save £3,630 per year by switching to leather aprons.

Light and flexible

We’ve experimented to find a type of leather that’s light and comfortable enough to wear all day, but also extremely durable so it forms an extra skin around your body, protecting you from any knife blunders. It is flexible enough for you not to feel obstructed in your work. In fact, the butchers we spoke to say it’s like wearing an ordinary cotton apron, but with a little more body.

Safe money

The initial costs for leather aprons might be higher than regular designs, but you’ll save money over time. Standard cotton aprons need to be washed every day and laundry bills can become a serious overhead for butchers. However, our easy-care leather aprons have an extra protective layer, making them quick and easy to keep clean.
