In Austria common name (dialectal Fiata, Firta or Fürta) for the winegrower's standard blue apron, which is mainly made of fabric. The garment is tied in front of the belly and sometimes also the chest to protect the clothing (shirt, trousers) from dirt. Depending on the intended use, such aprons can also be made of other materials such as rubber or leather. In Germany this apron is also called Vorbinder or Vorstecker.
