Witloft was born in 2014 when the founders decided they wanted a leather apron that would withstand the test of time – and heat, whether at home or at the workbench. Their love for the barbecue, cooking and woodcraft is what triggered their initial idea behind the pieces. Originally making them for themselves and then later for friends, the demand has grown.
Since then, they have expanded their range to include some of the finest quality leather tableware and accessories like knife rolls on the market. All their pieces continue their tradition of using the highest quality leather, which is treated and finished by hand.
Their leather ware is synonymous with craftsmanship and authenticity; Borough Kitchen are proud to be one of the select retailers introducing this brand to the UK.
Superior to linen and cotton, leather is heat-resistant which makes it perfect for tending the BBQ. Each leather apron is made entirely by hand from Dutch vegetable tanned leather and is treated with a coating to make it stain repellent. And because leather breathes, it will shape to its user.
Their tableware and knife rolls will soften with age, and are a resilient and functional alternative to traditional linen or cotton.
