Most waxed aprons are made from canvas, with a thick top layer of paraffin (to repel water), but that makes them heavy and stiff. The Tilit Contra Chef Apron, on the other hand, is made from a thinner cotton fabric that contains a water-repelling solution. This little detail makes the Tilit apron lighter and more comfortable than typical waxed canvas aprons. We think the clean lines, narrow bib, and welted pockets give the Tilit Contra a neat and polished look, and Dad will agree. And this apron comes in a slew of both perennial and seasonal color options.

Be sure to read the fine print before purchasing as shipping times are changing each day.
