The idea for BowlOvers™ was born several years ago in the English countryside by Harriet Campbell, who disliked using cling wrap and for years had taken shower caps from hotels to put over bowls rather than use it. However, this solution wasn’t ideal, as Harriet really wanted to have something that could be washed and re-used over and over again. Putting the tea towels in the washing machine one day a light bulb came on and BowlOvers™ started their journey. Harriet made samples, spent a lot of time talking to friends, telling them she was going to develop the concept, but wondered how she could get her idea finally off the ground. One day, a friend suggested Harriet enter the Country Homes & Interiors Magazine “Rural Business Award” (UK edition), as apparently all the entries would get a short comment from the judges. She entered, and much to her delight and surprise, her BowlOvers™ were one of the runners up and the prize was several hours’ business consultation with a marketing firm. Their encouragement and professional advice was the final “piece of the pie” that helped Harriet to take her idea, and make it reality.
BowlOvers™ are fast becoming a staple in every pantry, receiving great mentions in the press for this “very clever and jolly useful” way of resolving the issue of food wrap in an eco-friendly and convenient way.

Makes for a happier planet
A wise Eco alternative to wasteful plastic wrap! The elastic edges allows it to fit snugly over my bowls. I use them mostly with round bowls but I have used them on a few square containers just the same. I don’t have a bowl for the smallest size cover but found it useful to cover drinks when outside. There is a paw print on this small size cover in the Original collection so it’s probably designed to be used for a pet food can. I’ve also used BowlOvers™ when making my Nut Rolls to keep the bread warm while it rises. They are a handy kitchen helper taking up very little storage space. And they would make for a thoughtful hostess or housewarming gift.
