Maekake Apron

Founded in 2000, Anything Apron creates original maekake (a traditional Japanese apron) that was created hundreds of years ago for staff working in rice shops.

The thick belt is meant to tighten around your waist and back bone (iliac bone) which is located near your pelvis. In this way, it helps with the standing position of any adults working in heavy duty manual labor, stabilizing the user’s hip and joints.

Using indigo-dye and cotton weaving, it creates a thick canvas to prevent the user from heat and also possibly any injuries as well. A traditional Mizuhiki knot  on the packaging also symbolises the tying method around the waist of the maekake.
