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.
