1874works was founded by Susan a seamstress and Ronald a leather worker.
The name 1874works comes from the age and history of the building where the aprons are made.
Our aprons are hand made from high quality waxed cotton with a treated cotton lining sourced from local fabric manufacturers Halley Stevensons Limited Dundee and tough yet supple leather and solid brass buckles and fixings.
These items are designed to be used and become part of your everday life.
Although traditionally made the aprons have modern design aspects we have developed ourselves such as a simple but necessary phone pocket on the inside of the apron at chest height for both convenience and the safety of your phone and a feedback loop on the waist buckle to avoid having any part of the leather waist belt get in your way while working.
Making these aprons we endeavor to provide the highest standards and create a garment that not only lasts but inspires.
