The Story

Everything started over a glass of wine 5 years ago with long time friend and chef Jennifer Jasinski. While aprons had been around forever, the style was about to change, and Jasinski wanted one that fit her needs and style of her first restaurant, Rioja. With a list of do’s and don’ts the first apron was created, the first order for 30 aprons was placed and the rest, as they say, is history.
