Flax Linen Couche
Jovial’s linen couche for bread baking are hand-crafted on the island of Sardegna by Mario and Franca, a husband and wife team of artisan weavers. The 100% untreated raw flax linen is grown on the island and woven on ancient looms into large pieces of linen. Each individual couche is hand-cut and a simple hem with 100% cotton thread is sewn on each side to prevent fraying. Used in the final stage of proofing after shaping the loaf, jovial’s linen couche is a helpful tool in einkorn bread baking because the linen will not stick to the dough.
Care Instructions: Wash before first use. We recommend washing in the delicate cycle with warm water and mild soap. Always line dry. Your couche does not require laundering after each use. May be used for about a month without washing, even if you bake bread frequently. Simply shake out the excess flour from the cloth and hang to dry thoroughly before folding and storing.
