I came home this evening and Kathy showed me an apron she purchased as a gift from Koda Organics. Koda was founded by Mario Matos, who, if you take a moment to read the company bio, started-off working in a sewing factory and went on to create Chameleon USA. Koda is an offshoot of that company and what sets it apart is the use of organic materials. Everything is handmade in Koda’s Georgia facility.The apron Kathy purchased was called the “Wescott,” which is made from a combination of 100 % organic cotton and organic vegetable-tanned leather. It came in attractive packaging, perfect if you want to send a direct gift.The Apron is very sturdy and Koda Organic uses rivets and grommets to provide added strength in key areas.
They come in a variety of styles from full bib to a short bistro style and can be ordered in a wide array of colors.Most aprons feature at least one pocket or multiple storage compartments. The full size apron has comfortable load-bearing cross-over back-straps that really allow you to dial in the fit.The Tanoak bistro apron shown above is made from full grain leather.
Looking for a more personalized apron? They can add your name and a logo for a nominal charge.
According to Kathy, her only suggestion to Koda Organics would be to offer a petite size for short-waisted women. She would not be able to wear the apron herself, because the chest section is too long for her torso. Other than that, we both really like the design and quality.
