Although it only opened three months ago, Bramby Supply Co, a shop selling custom-made aprons, appears as though it could have been nestled on this street in the Born for decades. Everything looks vintage, from the shop’s painted sign and the black and white photos depicting workmen in heavy-duty aprons, to the denim used for the garments, which is created using traditional denim-making machines. Fernando Brambilla (known to his friends as Bramby), who moved to Barcelona from his native Argentina 12 years ago, takes great pride in his products, which he and his wife can be seen making by hand at the back of their shop. The aprons are made from a thick, high-quality denim and include pockets and leather straps that go over the shoulders to avoid putting pressure on the neck. While bartenders are his most common customers, Bramby can customise the aprons for any type of professional, such as a hairdresser who needs a certain type of pocket for their instruments. Bramby’s products are also popular with members of the general public, especially those who love cooking.
