Belgian handmade barbecue apron in full-grain aniline leather (cow). This leather comes from an Italian tannery.
With its fantastic natural look and slightly thicker (2mm) finish, this apron is very popular with BBQ fanatics. It is also a desirable apron for self-employed people and companies where very nice engravings (logos) are possible on the apron itself. Engraving is already possible on a single apron so this is also a great option for a personalized gift!
Anilineleather is leather dyed in a drum with aniline dyes. Aniline dye is a translucent, water-soluble synthetic dye without any insoluble pigments. It is smooth leather with open pores without a pigment layer on top so that the natural texture of the skin is still visible. Each apron is also treated with a protective layer of oil.
Full-grain is the upper side of the hide. It is the strongest type of leather with the densest fibre structure: so you choose a durable apron to pass on from generation to generation. Year after year, the leather develops a more beautiful patina with a distinctive look.
As a rule, only flawless hides are considered for full grain aniline leather, as the surface structure of the leather remains fully visible. Leather with wounds, tick bites or other imperfections are not suitable for most 'luxury' applications.
At DelVache, however, we find that characterful hides are suitable for barbecue aprons. Are you perfect? Neither is the leather of these aprons. This leather has been minimally processed for maximum authenticity and each apron tells a different story.
The adjustable neck and waist straps allow you to adjust the apron perfectly to different body shapes. The straps are made from Tuscan vegetable tanned full-grain leather.
