Here at ucciinc we're recreating the 1890's look and giving it a fresh new coat of paint (sometimes literally!). We offer vintage styles reminiscent of 1890's New York and we're bringing them to you at affordable prices. They are dyed, stenciled, and hand painted by me.
Every apron is handcrafted and designed in downtown Manhattan. The designs you love, made in the city you love. With our diverse selection of aprons, you’ll discover a design that will be welcomed at any kitchen, bbq or dinner party. Plus they are machine washable and hold up very well to a lot of use.
