Our manufactury Apronista was founded in Liberec in the year 2016 as an answer to demand for modern aprons not just for gastronomy. In those days most services were dominated by standard unified fabric aprons, sewn in thousands. Because we have very close to gastronomy and specialty coffees and we also live with design and fashion, our challenge was clear. To sew original, memorable, yet practical and wearable aprons for barista/bartender/chef contests. And the response was unexpected.
In the year 2017, with founder Zuzka Válková in the lead, Apronista was already making aprons for many established or beginning coffee shops, restaurants and bars. Meanwhile, our aprons were desired in other professions – hairdressers, barbers, florists, joiners, librarians, restorers and artists. First orders from abroad are coming.
2018 is a year full of changes for our company. We moved to bigger spaces in the centre of Liberec, bought new sewing machines and our team is growing. Nonetheless, besides basic fabric processing, we stay entirely handcraft manufactury.
