Hand-Dyed Walnut - Last Call!

Hand-Dyed Walnut - Last Call!

Regular price $215.00 Sale

Status: Limited quantity of 30" models in stock and ready to ship. 

All good things must end and this is our last call on the Walnut Veg-Tan as we all know it. As such, if you there is inventory available here, then that's what we got... and that's all that we got. So if you want to get your hands on what has been our original flagship work apron since the start, then this is your last chance. 

To be clear, it's still so damned beautiful and we still love it, but... it's extremely time-consuming to make and we've got some new styles around the corner we've been itching to get to. 


We like to take a few liberties with our Walnut Work Aprons, so you can expect that no two are the same and that yours will start off with a character very much its own. Some are darker, some are lighter and some even feature the hide's original brand (those are our favorites). Plus, you should probably know that although this particular model starts off stiff as a board, they are designed for an easy break-in for many years of comfortable wear. 

Color: Deep Brown - Walnut (shades vary)
Hardware:  Nickel
Length Options:  30"

Strap options: 

  • X-Back: For an incredibly comfortable fit, choose the adjustable 1" harness-style straps with quick-release. 
  • Y-Back: Combines the comfort of the harness style straps with a sturdy, adjustable belt for a perfect, secure fit. 

What you should expect 
At Calavera Tool Works, we take great pride in our work aprons, designed for those who work with their hands to make a living. They are, as some might say, a labor of love. And though great care goes into the handcrafting of each work apron, we will always err on the side of leaving a brand, blemish, scratch or other imperfection in the finished product rather than waste even a small amount of such a precious material. It is our belief that these aprons are meant to be used, and that these imperfections will enhance the character of what we expect to be one of your favorite investments ever.

But if for some reason you are in any way disappointed with the appearance or finish of your apron, we welcome you to return it for a full refund. We'll find it a good home, promise. 

A note on caring for your work apron
In the shop, we finish all our work aprons with Dr. Jackson's Conditioning Cream. A modest application will do good things to worn or dry areas. For hotter, dryer regions (or applications), we recommend modest doses of Fiebing's Aussie Leather Conditioner with Beeswax. Don't apply too much or things may get a little sticky.
