PRODUCE ATTRACTIVE GOOD QUALITY PROTECTIVE CLOTHING
We have developed a range of professionally produced protective clothing, including bibs, smocks and tabards particularly for adults but also for children who have additional needs at meal times.
PROVIDE COMMUNITY EDUCATION AND LEARNING IN A FRIENDLY, RELAXED ENVIRONMENT
We run educational and fun classes in the Oxgangs area of Edinburgh.,
PROMOTE SOCIAL INCLUSION AND MINIMISE ISOLATION AND STIGMA
The classes help reduce isolation, increase skills and improve the possibility of employment. They also encourage a better sense of “community”.
Our Everyday Adult Bibs Range
this is a reversible bib style apron, available in array of sizes and fabric design. These are trimmed with binding and give the appearance of wearing a t-shirt or casual top, rather than a bib.
Our Deluxe Adult Bibs Range
this is a reversible bib style apron, available in array of sizes and fabric design, but with the addition of a lace collar or shirt style collar for the gentlemen. This gives the appearance of a normal blouse or shirt and takes away the stigma for those people who need the protective apron.
Our Extra Protection Range
these bibs are available in Everyday Range and Deluxe Range appearance, but are not reversible. The are made up of an extra waterproof layer to provide increased protection for heavier spillage.
Our Bespoke Range
These are made specifically to the customer’s needs. For instance, to co-ordinate with a wedding outfit or for use at an other special occasion. We will tailor the apron to camouflage with the outfit, in order to reduce stigma to the wearer.

OUR EVERYDAY RANGE - This is a reversible bib style apron, available in an array of sizes and fabric design. These are trimmed with binding and give the appearance of wearing a t-shirt or casual top, rather than a bib.
