Blue & Grae
GLADSTONE Leather Apron
Back by popular demand. Our classic aprons have adorned the shoulders of baristas, bartenders, hairdressers and workshop-goers worldwide, including us.
Constructed from premium full grain Australian leather and solid brass hardware - always.
GLADSTONE is so named after the first city in which these aprons were first commercially used. Serendipitously, most of our Australian leather originates from the central Queensland region, traceable by the cattle brands that are visible in some of the hides. It fills us with pride to be able to use truly Australian leather in our Australian made leather goods.
GLADSTONE is available in three sizes and features adjustable shoulder and waist straps, suitable for all makers. Please refer to the sizing chart.
We would love to make our aprons the star of your fit out - for commercial, customisation or branding enquiries please contact us directly at: email@example.com

Quality Mission Statement
All Blue & Grae pieces are made from start to finish with craftsmanship and longevity at the forefront. All of our pieces are made in Brisbane, Australia by dedicated, skilled hands. When we say ‘hand-made’, we truly mean it.
With use and age, your Blue & Grae piece will evolve. Patina is not a flaw but instead a reflection of the leather’s natural beauty and a celebration of your journey together. Your care ritual can be as strict or as simple as you care for but as a minimum, we recommend the following:
General Luggage Care
Your bag has been pre-treated with a general protectant and we recommend replenishing this protection every few months. While this will protect against the elements, it does not make products waterproof. Leather and cotton canvas are natural, porous materials and should not be exposed to excessive liquid in any form. In the event that this does occur, please allow your piece to dry completely at room temperature and avoid applying any heat to your luggage to accelerate the drying process.
Clean with a slightly damp cloth and leave to dry at room temperature. Once completely dry, follow up by polishing the leather with an uncolored, conditioning polish. Always begin by testing an inconspicuous area first. Do not use saddle soap or dubbin as these will alter the leather. Leather polish will stain canvas or other materials, so be sure to avoid these areas. Our smaller leather products such as the wallets, should not be overfilled. Once stretched, leather will not return to its original form.
Our canvas is 100% cotton and should not be machine-washed. Keep your canvas goods protected with a general protectant like Scotchgard, for hassle-free maintenance. Dry cleaning may cause shrinkage and further damage.
