Carry your Lunch Japanese Style

With school starting soon, I wanted to share with you a fantastic furoshiki lunch box alternative. Lay a fabric wrap flat on the table and place your lunch items in the center. Take two opposite corners and tie them into a square knot; repeat with the remaining two corners. The lunch bundle can be carried by holding it from the top knot. Fabric lunch wraps are versatile as the fabric gathers around any shape so you can include drinks and larger items. When you are ready to eat, simply untie the knots and use the wrap as a table cloth and napkin. Furochic is 100% cotton so can be easily washed if necessary before using again.

Summer Furochic

Summer is a great time to use Furochic fabric wraps for gifts or keep one in your purse for outings. If it gets hot, you've got a headscarf to protect you, if it gets mucky you've got a nice clean square to sit on, if you get hungry you can bundle up a picnic lunch in a wrap and then use it as a napkin or tablecloth. Perfect for the beach too - brush off sandy hands, make one into a bag for collecting shells, wrap your sunscreen up so it doesn't leak in your bag etc... And don't worry if your wrap gets dirty, you can simply pop it in the washing machine, hang to dry and it's as good as new.
This double bottle wrap is great for carrying drinks to a BBQ. Or wrap a bouquet of fresh flowers for a hostess gift.
