This gorgeous matzah cover and Afikoman bag set will add a touch of color and distinction to your Passover table! The design features the Children of Israel passing through the parted Red Sea towards an iconic Passover image - the matzah. In the center is written Pesach on the Matzah cover and Afikoman on the Afikoman bag in Hebrew letters, while the matzah cover has three sections inside to separate the top and bottom matzahs from the middle matzah. The motifs are outlined in gold or black and hand-painted on silk with unique colors using a brush. The fabric undergoes a fixation process to make it color-fast. This will be a treasured centerpiece in anyone's Passover home!
