Description

Replica made in 1984 of an apron worn by shinglers (workers who procesed a mas of white-hot iron and slag) during the late 19th and early 20th century. The leather apron has a long history and remains unequalled for some areas of work. Its natural resilience gives the user excellent protection against all manner of hazards, such as metal and chemical splashes.
