Chef Neckerchiefs – Helping to protect the professional
Chef neckerchiefs are an essential part of any culinary uniform. They not only add a touch of style to the outfit, but they also provide practical benefits to chefs, such as protection from spills, burns, and hair on the face
Why chefs wear neckerchiefs
Neckerchiefs traditionally will help to keep you feeling cooler in the kitchen when worn under the collar of a chef jacket. It also helps to increase hygiene and comes in various colours to match your chef's clothing.
Types of Chef Neckerchiefs
There are several different material types available, including those made from cotton, polyester, and blends of both materials. Cotton neckerchiefs are typically more comfortable and breathable, while polyester neckerchiefs are more durable and resistant to wrinkles and stains.

Choosing the right size and fit
Chef neckerchiefs typically are one size fits all, but it's still essential to choose a neckerchief that fits comfortably and securely around the neck. A neckerchief that is too tight can be uncomfortable, while one that is too loose can be a safety hazard.
How to tie a Chefs Neckerchief
There are several ways to wear a chef neckerchief, but the most common method is to fold the neckerchief into a triangle, place the folded edge at the base of the neck, and tie the ends in the back.
Another popular method is to fold the neckerchief into a strip, wrap it around the head, and tie it in the back.
Care and Maintenance
It's important to avoid using bleach or fabric softeners, as they can damage the material. After washing, it's best to air dry the neckerchief to prevent shrinking or damage.
