Reversible Shweshwe Dish Cover

(1 customer review)


A reusable dish cover is a simple and cute swap for single-use plastic wrap.  No more need to cover containers with plastic wrap! They’re perfect for making bread, covering a salad to be served later, cookies to bring to a neighbour or taking food to a picnic, a braai or the beach. Using a dish cover is also great for covering your homemade kombucha or sourdough starter. The options are endless.

Bowl covers make perfect hostess gifts or something to gift a new homeowner. A dish cover is also a useful present for every mom, grandmother or sister. They are durable, easy to use and clean. The elastic edge allows the fabric to fit tightly to different diameter dishes.

These unique reversible dish covers made from shweshwe cotton, usually used for traditional Southern African clothing. This handmade product is locally made in Cape Town by work from home mothers as well as elderly women who hold together families affected by poverty.


Medium (fits a bowl of approximately 16 to 20cm)
Large (fits a bowl of approximately 20 to 30cm)
Extra large (fits a bowl of approximately 30 to 38cm)
Set of three: 3 covers that fit bowls of approximately 12 to 15cm, 20 to 25cm and 25 to 30cm.

Your dish cover will stretch around your bowls and cover them snugly. Thank you for helping to protect our planet by saying no to single-use plastic.

    Got a message asking if I would be happy with a different print, but really happy with it. The print I got was even prettier than the one pictured. Good quality and a great size
