While working as a line cook at Bäco Mercat and 2-Michelin starred Providence in Los Angeles, Hedley & Bennett founder Ellen Bennett realized the drab, essentially disposable aprons that served as their uniforms needed a major upgrade. She continued working both line cook jobs and threw herself into growing her apron business, spending time at farmers markets on the weekends and busting into kitchens and introducing herself to chefs from all over.
Today, Hedley & Bennett's mission is to design the world's best work wear & build a community in the kitchen and beyond!
Join LA Design Festival for an open house of their Vernon warehouse to discover how each product is handcrafted from start to finish using top grade American canvas, raw Japanese selvage denim and European linens. These unique pieces are built to last -- each fabrication detail carefully considered and tested to handle the rigorous hustle and bustle of a professional kitchen.
