Shabbat Shalom Challah Cover: An Optical Illusion Speaks to the Spiritual Emotions of Shabbat
Launching this season is a Challah Cover with Shabbat Shalom written in Hebrew. Inspired by the magical feel of Shabbat, the design is an optical illusion. Made with velvet fabric, considered a traditional material, and enhanced with a mesh background popular in the Challah Cover from the core collection.
“Velvet material has been a popular and long used material in challah covers so we wanted to explore it with a modern technique (laser cut),” explained Gabriela.
Rocks Challah Cover: A Natural Evolution of Apeloig Collection Design
This new design is a natural evolution from the first core collection design. It starts in the corner with Apeloig Collection’s signature Star of David and progresses into a scattered modern design. The words Shabbat Shalom are in Hebrew and were a tribute to the many customers who requested the wording.
Core Collection Challah Covers: A Contemporary Take on Grandma’s Favorite Lace
Apeloig Collection translated the intricate, elegant patterns on grandma’s dollies into an equally beautiful yet contemporary laser-cut version. The cover is made of two distinct fabrics, giving the challah cover the illusion of light and air. Delicate tulle is layered below an acetate fabric that has been laser-cut with a precise pattern of modern Stars of David. The challah cover is available in eight colors: gold, silver, bronze, taupe, cream, black/white, blue, and eggplant.
The Apeloig Collection also includes:
Mezuzah: Sophisticated Simplicity
Elegant in its simplicity, Apeloig Collection modern mezuzah reminds us that the most beautiful part of the mezuzah is the text within. Available in 16 vibrant colors and four sizes, each handcrafted mezuzah is made out of acrylic that ensures the mezuzah scroll housed inside is always visible. Each Apeloig Collection mezuzah comes in beautiful custom packaging that’s perfect for gift giving. The collection also includes a new “wood” design style which was inspired by current design trends.
Challah Boards: Modern Versatility
Made of beautiful translucent acrylic, this modern challah board is as dazzling as it is versatile.
