I’ve stumbled upon so many lovely modern and stylish challah covers lately. I’ve rounded them up and featured my favorites below.
Do you have a favorite challah cover you use regularly for Shabbat?
The Blossom Rose Challah Cover is designed by Tamara Zlotogoura who lives and works in Alicante, Spain. She is inspired by nature’s splendor and it’s rejuvenation cycle. The seven stamens within each flower in this cover represent the cyclic nature of the natural world and G-d’s creation. Material : 76% cotton / 24% Linen.
Grape Leaf and Wheat Challah Cover by Tina Davis. Davis chose the shape of the grape leaf to represent the kiddush, and the hand embroidered cover with a wheat design to represent the blessing over the bread. Each cover is made with the finest linen, which has been cut to shape, and has been pre-washed and pressed by the artist in Israel. It’s then hand-finished and embroidered by specially selected artisans in Thailand. Every cover includes a handsome, natural cardboard portfolio for storage.
Hand Woven Challah Cover by Israeli weaver Ori Faran. “Shabbat” in Hebrew is embroidered in the middle of the cover. Made from fine cotton threads, carefully handwoven on traditional looms in Israel. The weavers have a special prayer before and during the weaving so each one of their products is full of good energy and love. The size and colors can be customized.
From top left: This simple, beautiful Petal Challah Cover conceals a round challah under four separate “petals” that are unfolded after the blessing. Each cover is handmade and hand-finished with mercerized cotton and 100% natural Belgian linen and generously-sized for large holiday loaves (25″ diameter). The Round Challah Cover (top right) features an abstract Star of David in mercerized cotton in gently fringed 100% Belgian linen. Bottom: The Star of David Challah Covers are woven in mercerized cotton thread. All four challah covers are made by Lake House Linens’ David Zrihen exclusively for Fig Tree & Vine.
Challah Cover by Bulurru Aboriginal artist Peter Marshall. Printed cotton, décor golden thread embroidery and backing white cotton.
The Hamotzi Challah Cover is created by artisans at Kibbutz Beit HaEmek, which is in northern Israel, in the western Galilee. It’s handpainted on 100% silk.
