Jikoni Full Apron - Black
“Jikoni” is the Swahili word for “Kitchen.” Classy and elegant with a touch of the continent.
Sturdy enough to handle life in restaurant kitchens, yet elegant enough for home use, our signature aprons are handmade with 100% cotton drill and durable brass buckles for easy adjusting. Featuring two front pockets, a towel loop and extra long straps to tie in front or behind, our aprons are perfect for the professional chef and home chef, alike.
Ecodunia’s aprons are handmade in our very own workshop in Kenya. We source all the fabrics from a cotton mill in central Kenya and add a little flare of traditional African “Kitenge” fabric.

ETHICALLY MADE IN AFRICA
We are committed to providing dignified work for communities in Africa. We work with local craftspeople, driven to share African products with the rest of the world. We’re aiming to build 500 jobs for people who have been left behind by the global economy.
FOR A GOOD CAUSE
Your dollars are not going to some mega corporation or factory, they’re going to a good cause that will benefit generations to come. Our business is not only driven by profit, but with a mission to lift people out of generational poverty. We support local industry - even the cotton we use is grown and processed in East Africa. Additionally, we use a portion of our profits to provide education to girls in rural Kenya.
HELP OUR PLANET
Our products are made with sustainably grown cotton, recycled materials, and free range leathers. Sustainable industry is key to a thriving planet for everyone. Our products are not made in a corporate factory, they're made with care to benefit generations to come. We do not package our products in plastic.
BLACK OWNED. WOMAN OWNED
Wealth inequality is a story of gender and racial inequality. We believe that providing opportunities to traditionally underrepresented people is the best way to make a difference. Vote for equality with how you spend your money. Buy black owned. Buy woman owned.
