Werthan Seamless is the type of bag used to make this apron.
Below the logo is the word "Toshoku" printed sideways. This is the name of a Japanese food and grocery trader that started in 1971 and was purchased by Cargill in 1998.
There were no patches necessary for this apron, but there are at least three places that have loose threads which may develop into holes. There is a larger dark spot, and general marks and lighter spots as are typical with this age of vintage feed sack. Please consider all of these factors before purchase.
The neck strap and waist ties are from cotton webbing. Cold water wash and line dry are recommended to prevent fading and shrinking.
The apron waist is 34 inches.
The length is 36 inches.
The ties are each 42 inches.
Please use measurements to determine sizing.
In person, these aprons are typically sold for men for grilling or outdoor cooking.
According to the website Historic Nashville, the Werthan Bag Company developed from Werthan and Company, founded in 1908. Joe and Morris Werthan led the company after the death of their father and "engaged primarily in the production and distribution of new burlap and cotton bags." The company later changed to producing paper bags.
* Please keep in mind this apron was created from an authentic vintage cloth sack. Photos show the design and print darker than in actuality. While the apron is described as accurately as possible, due to the vintage quality there may be age marks not noted specifically. Also, finding some or many seeds or feed pieces caught in the fabric is quite common. The bags have been washed at least once and many seed/feed pieces have already been removed, but some may remain.
But please contact me if you have any problems with your order.
