Interesting aprons I have seen

Aprons as I understand are mainly used while cooking.


An apron is an outer protective garment that covers primarily the front of the body. It may be worn for hygienic reasons as well as in order to protect clothes from wear and tear, or else due to a symbolic meaning.

The apron is commonly part of the uniform of several work categories, including waitresses, nurses, and domestic workers. Many homemakers also wear them. It is also worn as a decorative garment by women. Aprons are also worn in many commercial establishments to protect workers clothes from damage, mainly bib aprons, but also others such as blacksmith or farrier aprons.

In addition to cloth, aprons can be made from a variety of materials. Rubber aprons are commonly used by persons working with dangerous chemicals, and lead aprons are commonly worn by persons such as X-ray technicians who work near radiation. Aprons, such as those used by carpenters, may have many pockets to hold tools. Waterproof household aprons, made of oilcloth or PVC are suitable for cooking and washing dishes.

There are other “aprons” such as Airport apron and Blue Apron.

However, the aprons I am writing about here are those used in the kitchen for cooking or washing utensils after cooking and eating meals.


I have seen interesting aprons on sale in different countries in Europe. What caught my eye were 2 aprons being sold in Rome. I’ll show them at the end of the blog. First I want to say that these different interesting aprons reflect different tastes of the citizens.

Here is the apron sold in Edinburgh
