If you've been out to eat recently (in New York, San Francisco, Seattle—wherever), chances are you've seen chefs and kitchen staff kicking it up a notch—but in the wardrobe department. Chances are, these beautiful aprons by Los Angeles-based Ellen Bennett look familiar.

Ellen's handmade aprons of American canvas, Japanese selvage denim and European linens are as durable as they are gorgeous—of a "design quality as high as the clothes they're meant to protect." And they're no longer only for restaurant chefs. These beauties will be beloved by your favorite artists and at-home chefs alike. Available in assorted colors and patterns, from $68.
