Crafting for Crafters
We thoughtfully fuse the meticulous craftsmanship of the past with modern day values and innovation.
Yellow Stuff was born out of a passion-driven pursuit to outfit the makers of the world in something that promotes their creativity to its full potential, whether in the kitchen, behind the easel, or at the bar. Although founded in 2013, our team’s history in the leather craft and textiles began over 30 years ago with the family business of Yellow Stuff’s founder, Ake Luengthaviboon. After a career steeped in the world of cafes and coffee roasting, Ake realized the options for aprons that can handle the hustle of bustle of a barista without compensating style was nearly nonexistent. After numerous conversations with other hardworking makers, he realized there was a hole in the world of aprons that desperately needed to be filled. In the same humble Bangkok factory where the family factory Ake grew up with, with the same small group of skilled craftsmen and craftswomen behind the work table, Yellow Stuff was born.
From the first cut of leather to the final stitch in our top grade fabric, Yellow Stuff aprons are handcrafted with function, purpose, and careful design in mind. Our work is inspired by the souls of passionate makers, and we’ve made sure to include them in every step along the way. Between consulting chefs on what they need in the kitchen and having artist's test our aprons during their messiest projects, we’ve been able to come up with unique designs that are built to last. Sunbrella tech fabric, Italian linen, canvas, brass hardware, genuine leather, our utility-meets-aesthetics approach has been approved by all our wearers. With our granular attention to detail and product imbued with a sense of quality, we’re proud to be weaving the legacy of handmade goods in this fast world that’s driven by the mass-produced.
