Furoshiki are traditional Japanese wrapping cloths (Wikipedia). They can be used in many ways - as an impromptu bag, for wrapping things for storage, or as a reusable gift wrapping. Furoshiki have been making a comeback in Japan in recent years, as a beautiful, reusable and Eco-friendly way of gift giving and beautifying one's daily life.
How to wrap a bento box in a furoshiki:
Place the bento box in the middle of the furoshiki. If the box is square in shape, place it on the diagonal, so the sides are facing the corners of the cloth. Bring two opposite corners of the cloth over the box and tie securely. Then bring the other two corners over the cloth, and tie again. You can find instructions on the web for ways of wrapping different objects in beautiful ways, such as how to wrap a wine bottle to make a handle for bringing to parties.
