The best florist aprons to make your workday bloom

Looking for the perfect apron to wear as a florist? Look no further!

Arranging flowers or going to flower markets calls for florist aprons that are made to last in hard-wearing premium fabrics. The floral trade is as varied as the blooms being arranged and your day may involve splashes of water and cuttings, along with customer-facing service at the counter. Ensuring you and your team are decked out in aprons made for work with designer, fashion-forward detailing is imperative to elevate your brand. 

With experience dressing florists from small to large teams and across the world, we have fine-tuned the best florist aprons and details to make your workday bloom! From chest and waist pockets for tools, to full and half aprons suitable for personalization and logo embroidery, our range is as varied as your floral business.

Here's what you should look for when buying a florist apron!

1. Creating a personalised florist apron

At Cargo Crew, we specialise in creating a personalised look for you and your team that fits with your brand's colour palette, logo and aesthetic. 

When creating your personalised florist apron, you can choose to include name embroidery for each member of your team, or a monogram or why not add an emoji for a burst of fun! 

Explore our CC X YOU personalised aprons to create the perfect look for your floral business. We have showcased some of our favourite personalised aprons here for your inspiration – you can also combine an emoji with a name or monogram on your apron for a truly unique and personalised look.

2. Logo embroidery and customisation

If personalisation is not for your brand, then our custom logo embroidery service may be just the addition to your florist aprons. 

Our team of customisation experts can help advise on the best placement, colour and size for your logo embroidery across the entire range of our aprons. From full bib to half waist aprons, we can bring your logo and brand to life – just like the flowers you sell!

We also offer a screen printing service for florist logos that may be more detailed, span a larger size or are made of a variety of colours. This service is not only suitable for our aprons but across our t-shirt range meaning you can dress your crew in a florist uniform head to toe that is custom to your brand. For inspiration, our florist gallery showcases a range of aprons and uniforms.

3. Full or half florist apron – which one is for me?

Our apron range offers you a selection of apron lengths from full bib apron to waist or half aprons. The choice of which apron length is often a personal and comfort decision – some florists like their garments to be completely protected by a durable full apron. While a half florist apron may better serve movement and ease for deliveries when out on the road, while keeping all your essentials close at hand. 

Both apron options bring a different fashion style and aesthetic to your business. So it is important to consider the look you want for your brand. Some of our florist customers choose matching full and waist aprons to allow their individual team members to choose the apron that is most comfortable for them. The complementary colour palettes and the inclusion of branding on the aprons can bring the team uniform together. Chat to our team of experts for styling advice on how to bring your brand to life.

4. Choose a colourful strap for a pop of colour

Colourful flowers are just your thing so why not choose an apron strap in your favourite colour. Our Henry, Barkly and Ace aprons come with your choice of coloured apron strap – from pink to blue, navy and white stripe to leather look, there is a strap for every florist business.

If on the other hand you are looking for a choice of luxe detailed leather look straps our Tom aprons come in a range of luxury durable fabrics complemented by straps with premium metal loop or clip straps.

5. Don't forget your pockets

Spots for scissors and notepads, pens and twine - a good florist apron needs pockets! When designing our aprons our team of expert, fashion-led designers consider the placement and size of pockets on our aprons to both elevate the look of the apron but to ensure optimal functionality on the job. 

Small easy access chest pockets create a spot for your favourite secateurs and scissors to ensure they aren’t picked up by someone else. While lower waist aprons are larger and can accommodate heavier items like notepads, ipads and pens when serving customers, taking orders or planning your next arrangement.
