The Robyn Apron


The original Bird apron and still our bestseller. 

Designed for comfort and cut for women, the Robyn apron has you covered. The Robyn cross back and adjustable straps ensures a great fit for all sizes, from petite to tall.

We’ve used indigo denim, cut in 8oz. This mid weight denim is light enough to wear in comfort and thick enough to protect you from splashes.

Pockets matter. The Robyn apron totes a wide front pocket to park your hands and stash your tools. A discreet, second pocket is dedicated to stowing your pen – never be without your Sharpie again.

Designed from kitchen experience, you’ll find a tab for your tea towel, ready to grab hot pans and keep your hands clean. On the inner hem, there’s a handy loop to hang your Robyn when your day is done.

We make right here in the UK and believe in the values of slow fashion. Attention to detail is everything and quality is paramount.

Look at the deep hems and feel their weight in your hand.  Admire the mitred corners, sewn with care and craft. Enjoy the jolly red bar tacks, placed for strength on every pocket seam.

The fine finish on our Bird aprons,” says designer, Nicola Ridd-Davies, “Reflects my experience of high-end tailoring techniques from my time at Toast.

The Robyn apron is made in Great Yarmouth by a factory that has been running since 1898 and today is home to a team of over 20 craftspeople.  See our Makers page for more details.

Indigo dye is initially very deep and the denim will fade a little with each wash to give a comfortable appearance. The flip side is that there may be some colour rub when new so please keep your new denim Robyn away from light coloured fabric and upholstery.

To keep your Robyn looking good, always follow the washing instructions, avoid using fabric softener and stick to a cool wash.

    The Best Aprons

    I have had my eye on Bird aprons my so long and I knew that when I needed a uniform for my team, Bird would be our apron. Vicky and I worked on a customised embroidery and we loved the outcome. The girls love working in them, so comfortable and easy to move around in. Comfortable, stylish and made with care, for us we wear these with pride! Thank you Vicky.

    Ever since the first time.....

    When we first saw the Robyn, we fell in love. Not only because we love Robin's but because for the first time a cooking apron looked sexy. Well done Vicky. We can't wait to receive ours.

    Sometimes when you have a huge catering job or teaching a course that you are passionate about it can get scary! Doing up my Bird Chefs jacket and then layering it with my customized Robyn apron is my moment of calm that gets me into the zone. It feels like I am donning my superhero suit and that from this moment on I can cope with anything. It is also immensely comfortable and accommodates my rather large boobs…

    Here’s hoping that my cooking lives up to the apron quality. Great item. Fabulous design. Wonderful fit.

    Here at Bird we care for the environment and encourage you to too

    Our aprons and the environment are happier when they're washed on a cool wash

    We recommend hanging our aprons on the line, rather than tumble drying
