With its consistently comfortable, beautiful, and versatile organic linens, Coyuchi is a modern legend when it comes to bedding. So, when the brand recently surprised us with the launch of a small range of food storage solutions (think produce bags and snack bags), I had to put them to the test. I purchased Coyuchi’s set of Conserve Organic Bowl Covers, and my surprise quickly turned to utter delight.

Up against the fast-growing industry of reusable food storage solutions, it’s pretty, ahem, clear that plastic wrap’s days are numbered. Now, it’s about finding the right type of reusable solution that works best for you and your home, food, and environment. Read any number of my love letters to home essentials, and you’ll see that I’m a shamelessly aesthetics-first type of person. So, when it comes to food storage, most plastic-lidded containers, plastic wraps, and foils are out. Of course, they have to actually work, which ruled out some beeswax wraps for me (I can never seem to properly take care of them). I needed something fortifying but also ventilating, and Coyuchi’s 100 percent cotton bowl covers are exactly that. They’re officially the answer I’ve been searching for.

Not only do I use these beauties to cover bowls of freshly washed berries and vegetables I want to graze on throughout the day (which allows produce to air dry while staying protected from bugs and bacteria), but I also use the bowl covers when I bake. They’re perfect for covering my rising dough, keeping phyllo dough moist while assembling pastries (I just spritz the cover with water), and allowing sourdough starter to breathe just enough to get started. The covers are also reversible, so I can color code my baking projects for different bowls of goodies and always know what’s under each one.

The set comes with three sizes of 100 percent organic cotton bowl covers, each reversible in your choice of two color combinations. They’re even machine washable, but beware: Using dryer sheets or fabric softener can reduce the absorbency of the cotton over time (something to keep in mind for all your linens). If you’re looking for a new kind of reusable food storage solution that works, is easy to use and maintain, and looks stylin’ while doing so, Coyuchi’s Conserve Organic Bowl Covers are it.
