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.
