About Us NEW | Hedley & Bennett // Handmade Chef Gear

While working in various restaurants throughout Los Angeles, founder Ellen Bennett noticed the mundane and stale look of the American restaurant uniforms. What started as an experiment for one of her chef’s kitchens turned into a nationwide trend of culinary professionals donning these thoughtfully and well constructed designer aprons.

Each product is handmade in Los Angeles from start to finish using top grade materials such as American canvas, raw Japanese selvage denim and European linens. These unique pieces posses a quality as high as the clothes they're meant to protect.  Built to last, each fabrication detail has been carefully considered to handle the rigorous daily use experienced in a working kitchen.
