The Furoshiki Wrapping Cloth | Turquoise Beans is a premium furoshiki from the esteemed Japanese maker, Yamada Seni. On a gentle turquoise blue background, vibrant red beans (almost looking like red chillies) hang softly from white vines that grow across the furoshiki. Exquisite layers of shadowing give the furoshiki a distinctive character inspired by traditional Japanese aesthetics.
Furoshiki are traditional Japanese wrapping cloths (Wikipedia). They can be used as an impromptu bag, for wrapping things for storage, as eco-friendly reusable gift wrapping, and more! Furoshiki have been making a comeback in Japan in recent years, as a beautiful and "green" way of gift giving and beautifying one's daily life. We've got more design in our furoshiki collection available right here, and even a useful DVD teaching you how to get the best of this bento boxes best friend.
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 also find instructions online for wrapping different objects in creative ways, such as how to wrap a wine bottle to make a handle for bringing wine to parties.
