About


Hi! I’m Karla. I’m a maker, and the main human behind Koa Provisions.

Koa Provisions started as a bit of a happy accident. My husband is a chef, and one day asked if I could make him some aprons. I did, and eventually another chef asked for a custom apron, then another and then in came an order for a whole new set of custom aprons to outfit a whole restaurant.

For a long time custom work was all I did. But as I refined my aprons, I realized the same patterns would get requested over and over. And so in September 2018, I started a line of ready-made aprons based on my most popular patterns, now available here in our online store.

Aprons are functional – they keep your clothes clean when you’re making a mess. I love to create aprons that are beautiful, functional and made with quality materials for the cooks, bakers, makers, artisans and tiny chefs of the world. 

Koa Provisions has now grown into a small team, but all of our aprons are still crafted by hand in our Minneapolis studio.
