Furoshiki ECOlunchwrap

Furoshiki is the original eco lunchbag from Japan. If you can tie two knots, you can transform our Furoshiki ECOlunchwrap into a stylish lunchbag!
This ancient Japanese furoshiki tradition of knotting, folding and twisting fabric into reusable carriers dates back to the 17th century. It only takes a second to twist and tie our hand-woven and hand block-printed ECOlunchwrap into an eco-chic lunch carrier.
Chic and versatile, our ECOlunchwrap is double-sided, machine washable and sewn from handmade textiles. The solid colored fabric is handwoven khadi. The khadi fabric becomes even more beautiful once you know its history tying back to Mahatma Gandhi’s freedom struggle in the 1920s. The block prints made by artisans in India continuing on 1,000 year old Indian textile traditions.

Measure 24 x 24 inches.
Machine wash, tumble dry.
Beyond lunch, the wrap makes a great bandana, placemat, head wrap, mini tablecloth, scarf, napkin and more!

Artisan Story
Conserve – Born of a desire to reduce India’s mountain of waste, improve energy efficiency, and help some of Delhi’s poorest out of the city’s slums, Conserve India achieves all this by turning plastic bags into high fashion.
Conserve started as a fledgling recycling project but quickly adapted to confront the biggest challenge it was facing – what to do with the thousands of plastic bags that could not be composted or recycled locally.

from Elemental Herbs

lipspfHere it is, ladies, All Good Lips with COLOR! Not just any color, but 6 carefully chosen hues gathered from the earth’s natural minerals. Find yourself in wild places with color on your All Good Lips. They also made with pure zinc oxide rated at SPF 18 to protect you from the sun’s rays. Flavored with a hint of organic peppermint essential oil, the All Good Lips Tinted lip balms offer a whole spectrum of colors to explore. For an extra glossy shine, add All Good Lips Original Organic on top!
Color Descriptions:
Pacific Mist: a shiny shimmer, almost clear with a very light white hue. Nice on it’s own if you’re feeling subtle, or perfect for pairing with other colors to give them a little lift. We respect the mighty ocean and revere her mystical beauty. – Now re-formulated to be a creamier and smoother texture without zinc oxide.
Alpine Pink: this is true pink, light and airy. Take your pick; think of the native wild mountain bulb, Lake Alpine, Alpine Meadows….or your favorite alpine place.
Barnabe Rose: for the naturalist that loves the feel, this rose shows up well, and just enough to highlight your own pretty lip tones. Named for the birthplace of Elemental Herbs, Mt Barnabe Farm, in west Marin, CA.
Maroon Creek: So kissable! And dynamic, walk on the wild side with this one. The creek brings cool clear mountain water from the Maroon Bells near Aspen, CO down through the Roaring Fork Valley.
Red Rocks: is Red! Red from sandstone, not red from cherry cough drops. Ever dream of climbing high in a desert or seeing Rock ‘n Roll at the world’s coolest natural amphitheater? Red Rocks it is!
Copper Canyon: is a lovely brownish shine, a must for your fall wardrobes. Let’s go get lost! The copper canyons in Mexico are a wild and magical maze of flora, fauna and culture.
