2019 Holiday Gift Guide

Custom Chef Jackets, Lab Coats and Buckwheat Hull Pillows

Pinterest LinkedIn Tumblr

When most apparel companies state that they make custom chef jackets, aprons or lab coats; what they mean is that they offer mass produced ones that you can order with your name and logo embroidered on it. That material is often scratchy, raw, and not very attractive. These are garments professionals take pride in wearing, so shouldn’t they be made with that same pride!?

At Crooked Brook, each one of their custom chef jackets, aprons or lab coats is made to order in the USA, and can be personalized with the customer’s style, fit, choice of fabric, pockets, buttons, piping and embroidery.  Talk about custom-made with serious attention to detail! Some of their clients even have their own individual pattern and supply their own fabric and closures.

Crooked Brook women’s chef coats and aprons have become the uniform for the most recognized women in the noble art and science of gastronomy. Impressively, they also make alumni chef jackets for the Culinary Institute of America. That’s right – professionals and novices alike can enjoy Crooked Brook’s amazing chef coats!

Crooked Brook is not a uniform company. It is a unit of the atelier division of an art studio that offers full service apparel design, pattern making, sample making, private-label small lot production, direct-to garment printing and embroidery. 

They also offer custom buckwheat hull pillows and  zafu – meditation cushions made with organic, triple air cleaned buckwheat hulls and are available in any of the fabrics they offer with 100% cotton gabardine and 100% organic cotton twill being the most popular.  These are so uniquely comfortable, once you try buckwheat hull pillows, you’ll never want any other type.

Why not consider gifting a beautiful chef’s jacket to the professional or aspiring chef in your life this year?  An apron is always a wonderful gift for the gal that loves spending time in the kitchen. And who couldn’t use a better night sleep with a buckwheat hull pillow?! All Crooked Brook branded garments and accessories are proudly made to order in the U.S.A. and they ship worldwide. Hours of operations are 7:00 a.m. to 7:00 p.m. EST, seven days a week.

  1. 100% Gabardine Cotton?? This is a new fabric that I am hearing of for the first time! I too do not like scratchy clothes. I love the designs and colors! I would be afraid to get it dirty 😎 Very sharp! I just had to pin this! Lovely gift 🎁
