It also features leather trims for the top of the apron, pocket and straps. We are using a leather called vegtan (not to be confused with vegan) this is a luxury leather which is died using natural tannins and is the top surface of the skin of the cow. This means that it is beautiful to deboss into the leather to personilise the apron. So it means you can write names or initials into the leather by debossing (embedding the letters into the surface of the leather)
