about our company

Generation-long experience in leather craft and a passion for food and cooking merge at the foundation of Brickwalls and Barricades in 2016. Sturdy Dutch design meets the unique quality of our special developed apron leather in the hands of the finest craftsmen. The result is an artisanal collection of timeless leather goods with character and soul.

Only the best is good enough: our products are made of high quality European leather and manufactured by artisanal Dutch craftsmen. This way we keep full control over the production process at any stage and we can guarantee a truly honest product with superb quality which meets the highest European standards. All the hardware we use on our products are imported directly from Italy as these are the best available in the world.

about our aprons



Low Maintenance



Our aprons are made of specially developed, high quality European. Each apron is handcrafted by artisanal Dutch craftsmen. This way every apron is unique with their own little characteristics. Because leather is an organic product that breathes, the apron gets more beautiful over time and wear and the authentic look will be enhanced.



In contrast to traditional leather aprons, our aprons are very light weight (only 700 grams) and very flexible. This makes our aprons very comfortable to wear, even for daily use. The adjustable neck-strap, the comfortable leather neck patch and the easy adjustable waist strap assures a perfect fit for the skinny ladies right up to the big guys.



Our special developed leather is provided with an unique stain repellant coating so your apron needs very little maintenance. Any spillages (including coffee, red wine or oil) can be simply wiped off with a damp cloth and natural soap if necessary. To keep your leather apron in the best condition, occasional use of our special maintenance wax for leather aprons is strongly recommended. You can order our leather apron wax HERE.



As the incomparable durability of our products means a guaranteed, long product life-cycle, you can rest assured knowing that our aprons will last a very long time and might even become a (family) heirloom. Unlike fabric aprons, our leather aprons only get better and more beautiful wear after wear. Due to the easy maintenance, there will be also be no extra environmental load (or extra costs) on cleaning and the number of aprons needed in a business environment can also be reduced due to this.
