Siba and Research Unit Create a Luxury Leather Apron
We love bubbly celebrity Chef Siba Mtongana and were excited to hear of her partnership with South African designer brand Research Unit, to create a SIBA luxury leather apron. We’ve been behind-the-scenes with Research Unit at their workshop and we know the quality of their beautiful leatherwork and so we knew we’d be in for something special.
This exclusive apron is a sleek, minimalist design made from state of the art 3M Scotch Guard Canvas and hand-stitched South African first grade Bovine Leather detail. It boasts an exclusive water and dirt repellent feature – ideal for cooking up a storm in the kitchen!
The designer apron is complete with a handy detachable leather strap, to conveniently place a dishcloth while preparing a meal, as well as a large pocket for conveniently carrying last minute cooking essentials. The apron is proudly crafted in South Africa, by Research Unit, a progressive luxury leather goods brand, established in 2011, with outlets at the V&A Waterfront and Berlin, Germany.
“I am absolutely delighted to have teamed up with these dynamic designers. We are inspired to take both brands to the highest level globally. This is only the beginning for The Siba.Co merchandising – stay tuned,” says Mtongana.
A limited edition gift-set is now available and includes the new cookbook, My Table and SIBA designer leather apron at R1599, including free delivery in South Africa.
