Did you know the Weedy Sea dragon is the Victorian state marine emblem ?

To honour the year of the Dragon or Sea Dragon, we have developed a useful apron in the style of a Japanese Maekake apron. A simple waist apron that has been around since the 15th Century worn by craftspeople, sake brewers, shop keepers and hospitality workers.

Constructed from Japanese dark indigo selvedge denim and finished with a custom woven waist tape we have a limited number of 20 aprons available because small batch production is more sustainable than mass production. We work in small quantities, with skilled operators who pay attention to detail.         

Our denim waste apron features a Weedy Sea dragon designed by Mari Adams of Calamari Pictures.

Made for W.P.S.C by Nama Denim Studio.

 Dimensions : 46 cm wide by 72 cm in length ( including the fringe ) the apron fits all body types.



Why do we choose to feature and elevate the Weedy Sea dragon?

Weedy Sea dragon or Phyllopteryx taeniolatus, is a member of the Syngnathidae family which includes seahorses, pipehorses and pipefish.

Synonymous with Western Port Bay, the only place on earth Weedy Sea dragon are found is in the waters of Southern Australia. 

Unfortunately, Weedy Sea dragon are listed as 'near threatened' by the International Union for the Conservation of Nature, putting them in the same category as the White Rhino and the Eastern Bettong. 

A good place to catch a glimpse of the Weedy Sea Dragons is in the waters under Flinders Pier, located not far from West Head just inside Western Port bay.
