ticking striped aprons and napkins

Functional, No-nonsense Designs

Inspired by the rugged American West, you won't find any fancy ruffles or bows on these hard-working goods. Each is designed to perform its intended purpose honestly and without pretense.

Made from 100% Cotton

Soft and gentle to the touch, breathable, absorbent, and environmentally-friendly, all our goods are made from 100% cotton fabric and trims. Even our label is printed on 100% cotton fabric.

It's a wrap for the Kansas City Steak Company.

RMD recently cooked up a batch of custom imprinted aprons for the famous Kansas City Steak Company. Each of the finished aprons was then rolled and wrapped into a white butcher paper square stamped with the KCS logo for a special promotion later. Many thanks to our friends at KCS for allowing us to create and execute such a unique packaging solution.

I’ve never had an apron that feels that like it could withstand real time in the kitchen. Even my husband is now willing to wear an apron, so long as it’s yours.”

You may count me a life long customer, I received your napkins, square place mats and aprons, and I am in LOVE! I can imagine my grand kids wiping their faces with them!”

My RMD apron feels like a superhero cape. When I put it on, I feel like all things are possible in the kitchen. I can make anything, and solve any food problem. Plus, I look adorable.”

As someone who cooks every day and trained in restaurant kitchens, you really can never get enough good towels. This one is of the highest quality.”

There’s nothing more useful than a classic chef’s apron for the holidays—plus, this great utilitarian staple is hand sewn in Seattle and its durable cotton only gets better with age.”

I love the looks of them as well, it is quite hard to buy a child's apron without it being 'cutesie' (something my tween is not fond of) and the adult apron is stylish, ready to work with a purely classic look!”

You don't have to be a serious cook to get one, but you can look like it.”

There's a small Seattle company doing very cool things with kitchen linens. Raw Materials Designs makes kitchen towels and aprons that are made from plain, heavy-duty, unrefined, un-dyed cotton.”

This is the best kitchen towel ever! I've never had one like this. It’s made of cotton twill and gets softer with each washing. I love the industrial but natural & homey look of this towel.”
