The Mercantile is inspired by the aprons worn by both men and women in Grocery and Dry Goods stores up until the 1950’s to protect clothing during the working day.
The apron uses the whole width of the selvage and measures :
The apron is one of a numbered production run. Its details include copper grommets, Dawson branded die set buttons, heavy cotton webbing tape and copper rivets.
The Fabric :
13 oz Japanese Red Selvage; left dry.
Wash care :
We recommend that you wash as least often as possible if you would like to maintain the colour of the Dry Denim. This fabric is likely to shrink by 5% on it’s first wash so make sure you wash in cold water separately to reduce the shrinkage as much as possible, add a little salt in with the water to stabilize the indigo.
Log book :
Each of our aprons is sold with a log book which entitles the owner a free repair during the first 6 months. This does not affect your statutory rights.
