The Organic Red Heron Apron


Our most glamorous apron yet, inspired by the elegance of the Obi belt. 


Red Heron Organic is our first apron to be made from 100% organic cotton, grown in India and woven in Kerala. Not only is this red denim kind to the environment, it is super soft to wear and just gets better with age.

We've taken the bistro apron up a gear with tailoring, beauty and clean lines. The Heron apron features a deep waistband with wraparound ties to ensure your perfect fit.

A deep cut, cinched-in waist front-fastens with long wrap-around ties to hold you snug. As on all Bird aprons, the Heron features good pockets and these two are no exception:  deep, generous and with a tailored welt finish. We've sewn fitted darts over the tummy area to flatter our feminine form and keep you feeling svelte. 

Plus a discreet hanging loop located on the inner hem to hang your Heron when the day is done.

Also available in indigo blue.

This is hands down my favourite and I love the Nigella vibe” Catriona O’Sullivan, Scotland.

The Heron is made in Plymouth by Makers HQ, a social enterprise housed in the former Jaeger factory, established to reignite fashion and textiles manufacturing in the UK.  See our Makers page for more details.

Gorgeous, sophisticated apron

I stumbled upon Bird Clothing and loved the look of their products, so order the beautiful Heron Red Apron. Why not look good while you cook? I also bought one of their chef’s jackets and a lovely cook's tunic, which I have hardly taken off since it arrived

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
