The best part is that Hedley and Bennett aprons are suitable for both professional chefs and home cooks alike. Hedley and Bennett’s founder, Ellen Marie Bennett, is a professionally trained chef that realized the aprons she was wearing in some of the best kitchens in LA were not up to the task and failed. So she set out to create the best kitchen apron available, with all the necessary functionality, durability, pockets, colors, and comfortable fabrics demanded in a world-class kitchen.

The result was the Hedley and Bennett apron, which is meticulously crafted with functionality and comfort in mind, making them the perfect apron for any level of cooking.

The lifetime guarantee against product failure within intended use speaks to the confidence the brand has in its product.

Ellen Bennett has proudly exclaimed she has never seen a color she didn’t like and wanted Hedley and Bennettt aprons to be as beautiful as the food she loves to cook. Bennett views the kitchen apron as a “game day jersey” and something that a cook should be proud to wear. With all this in mind, it’s no wonder the color, pattern, and style choices Hedley and Bennett aprons offer is extensive. From rustic charm to unexpected elegance, Hedley and Bennett aprons can complement any style and kitchen aesthetic. The Bordeaux Crossback Apron, with its dark Bordeaux color and marshmallow-hued straps, is the epitome of classic-meets-contemporary style.
