Siba's foodie fashion


Every avid chef needs to dress well for the kitchen and that means wearing top SA celebrity chef Siba Mtongana’s gorgeous leather apron designed by Research Unit. Made using 3M Scotch Guard canvas and hand-stitched first grade bovine leather detail, the apron is repellent to both dirt and water, while also looking rather trendy. Rather than rushing to ‘freshen’ up before the guests arrive, you can now receive them in your smart designer apron! A large front pocket and a handy detacheable leather strap for a dishcloth makes it functional as well as, well, fashionable. To foodies, at least. Research Unit, the brand behind the new apron, is known for being a progressive designer of luxury leather goods. ‘I am absolutely delighted to have teamed up with these dynamic designers,’ Siba said. Siba, who released her first cookbook entitled My Table in December, says she has a few more merchandising plans up her sleeve. You can pre-order a limited edition gift-set which includes the cookbook and designer apron at R1599 by visiting
