School Aprons - How to Choose the Right Apron for Classes
Calling all schools, universities, tech schools & students!
When it comes to aprons, Aussie Chef Clothing Company has been a school apron supplier for over 36 years.
Choosing the right school aprons will depend on their intended use and in small part the schools personal choice. An aprons length, coverage, style and material can help determine how an apron should be used. Aussie Chef has over 30 different apron styles, in various colours and fabrics, so you are sure to find just the right apron for your students. Our friendly staff is also happy to make suggestions if you just can’t decide.
School uniform aprons are ideal for food tech, design tech, art studios, chef & hospitality training, floristry, hairdressing & beauty therapy classes. School aprons often are a functional part of a uniform, but they are also a form of protection. Aprons are used to keep clothes clean & tidy, for added protection from things like spills, food, dirt, germs, hazards, chemicals, paint, art materials or even to just hold pens, tablets and tools.
Styles of Aprons
The bib apron is the most common type of apron providing full body protection and come in all types of fabrics and styles. A waist or utility pouch style apron allows for easy movement but with the convenience of pockets to store your essentials. A pinafore apron is also a great alternative full coverage apron with a loose fit that makes it also extremely comfortable. In wet or messy environments, PVC or nylon aprons are an ideal choice for keeping your clothes dry and are easy to keep clean with a damp cloth, drying quickly.
