Well, the day has finally come... the Calavera Mahogany apron is sold out and officially discontinued.
That said, I miiight have something tucked away in back that I'll post in the next few days in case any of your last minute shoppers just gotta have this gleaming beacon of awesome in your life. Stay tuned.
About the goods...
Tough, veg-tanned leather work apron that'll start a little stiff, but break in quickly for a perfect fit. Though all our Work Aprons are built to endure years of hard work, the Mahogany has got just a little extra meat on its bones, if you'll pardon the expression, and is ready to suffer whatever extra special punishment you might dish out. Calavera Work Aprons feature 3 hard-wearing, adjustable strap options made from the toughest bridle leather we could find.
Main Panel: Veg Tan Mahogany Thickness:4-4.5ozwhole hide leather Front pocket: Mahogany Back Pocket: Mahogany D-tabs: Mahogany Straps: Mahogany
Streamlined Plain Front:This is the classic Calavera style... no muss, no fuss. Still, all aprons come with a standard-issue upper pocket for pens, pencils, small rulers and such.
Lower Pocket (with or without flap):A traditional rectangular pocket style that hews tight to the main apron panel to prevent accumulation of dust and debris, with or without the inclusion of the optional upper flap.
Paolini Pocket:Generously sized, side-entry pouch design prevents dust and debris from collecting, without the need for flaps. If we were going to rock the pocket, this would be our choice. Named after Gregory Paolini, who is a fantastic woodworker and teacher, as well as one of our favorite human beings.
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. We strongly endorse the Y-Back.

About our work aprons
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.
