The freedom to move and be creative 


While traditional uniforms are stiff and scratchy, CREAM Workwear is not. Our exclusive woven fabric means the fabric is soft and smooth against your skin with just the right amount of stretch, so the fabric works with you, rather than inhibit you. 


Be empowered to be creative. We have taken the time to identify the perfect blend of cotton and stretch to allow a comfortable level of freedom of movement.


Not all hospitality uniforms are created equal

Most chef jackets and hospitality uniforms are made from 65% polyester and have been manufactured in the same styles for almost a century. 


They’re often baggy ‘one size fits all’ chef uniforms that aren’t flattering. These jackets don’t make you, or your team, look forward to wearing their uniform on a long shift, especially not in the heat of the kitchen.  


From comfort, to style to breathability; CREAM Workwear has been perfected to deliver a semi-tailored chef jacket, apron or shirt that enhances your brand and embodies your skills. 


With each item individually checked for quality before it is dispatched. In our quest for perfection, we only source 100% organic cotton, sustainably grown and of excellent quality. 


Plastic Water Bottle

Why not polyester?

Mass produced chef and hospitality uniforms are made from at least 65% polyester based fabrics. Polyester, or polyethylene terephthalate (PET), is made by mixing ethylene glycol and terephthalic acid (basically it’s plastic). Polyester has come a long way, and it’s not all bad news, but it’s not the green solution of the modern day kitchen. We believe the benefits are outweighed by the negatives. 


  • Polyester is man-made from chemicals that can irritate sensitive skin. 
  • Polyester doesn’t breathe, so it traps the heat in. Definitely not the solution for hot kitchens in hot climates such as Australia and Asia. 
  • It traps odours. Not great for BO (body odour) sufferers. 
  • Cheaper polyester fabrics can be rough on sensitive skin and cause irritations. 
  • Polyester is not fire-friendly. Any kitchen has a high risk of fire. Polyester, when set alight, melts. It’s plastic. It sticks to your skin and burns. Your natural reaction would be to pull it off, leaving severe damage behind. 


“I can remember the first time I put on my CREAM Workwear chefs jacket. It was a Sunday - one of those excruciating hot Australian summer days - and I was not looking forward to a 12-hour shift in an even hotter kitchen. That all changed when I slipped on my new chef jacket. It was so cool to wear, it didn’t restrict my movement, and I felt a sense of freedom to be creative - my mood improved and I was more than happy to go to work. These Chef threads are my best!”

Love What You Wear 


We strive for perfection in each chef jacket, apron or hospitality uniform. Our goal? To ensure you, and your team, present themselves with sophistication and style. Your team will love you for their CREAM Workwear uniforms… Being on trend and in extreme comfort has never been easier. 


The tailored, clean lines of our uniforms have been designed in conjunction with hospitality staff and International chefs, enabling us to add those little features that make all the difference. Our stylish, high-quality uniforms (whether we’re talking shirts for the hospitality staff, aprons, Chef jackets or pants) are woven from breathable fabric that has just that little bit of stretch, so they move with you, rather than hold you back. 


What makes these Chef jackets and hospitality uniforms (shirts, pants and aprons) unique? They’re cotton. No, they’re not just cotton, they’re 100% organic cotton (with an added touch of stretch). Why should you care?

Be hygienic.

Our uniforms breathe. They naturally wick the moisture away from your skin (this means they absorb the moisture off your skin), leaving you feeling cooler. Using certified organic cotton means that no toxic chemicals were involved in the growing uniform, so there are no irritants.

Safety first.

Kitchens have heating elements, and it’s not uncommon to encounter a fire at some point, our uniforms are not flammable. A CREAM uniform offers a cooler, softer, more comfortable, non-flammable option that your team will love you for (and if you’re the Chef, your skin will love you too!) 

Long lasting.

Long lasting (great for you, maybe not so much for us). 


As we strive for the highest quality garment, our workwear has been found to last more than 100 commercial washes and still look good as new. 


Break the mould.

Stylish and semi-tailored, our standard designer hospitality uniform range has been designed for the modern kitchen, restaurant or hotel with practical little features such as cotton eyelets, no labels that rub your neck, cleverly placed useful pockets and more.
