Crystal K grew up in a family of seamstresses in Northern California; studied liberal arts at New College (Florida's honors college); circumnavigated the globe via Semester at Sea; and managed Yoga International—an award winning, nationally distributed magazine—before moving to Madison a few years ago to be near her husband's family. It was then that she started pursuing her dream to reinvent the apron for today’s modern Doer. With the core belief that the apron is not a throw away accessory and that we should be able to do our messy work while looking our best, she began designing an apron that is at once flattering and functional, sexy and comfortable, classic and fresh. A year and 35+ prototypes later, her signature Apronera apron was born. Now she spends her time ushering in the New Apron Era.
ApronEra empowers today’s Doer with apron accessories and uniforms that are flattering, fashionable, and highly functional. ApronEra aprons are crafted in Chicago with premium materials and are designed to fit like a tailor-made accessory so that we can enjoy doing our messy work while looking and feeling our best.
