Coming Soon to beachcats bargains!

The ancient Japanese tradition of knotting, folding and twisting, dating back to the 17th century, is newly chic as the dangers of plastic to our health and the environment have become widely known.

Chic and versatile, furoshiki is the original eco-lunch bag from Japan. If you can tie two knots, you can transform the Furoshiki ECO-lunchwrap into a stylish lunchbag! Double-sided and machine washable, the cotton furoshiki (pronounced f-ROHSH-kee) wrap is sewn from colorful fair trade textiles hand printed by artisans using wooden blocks and wax batik techniques perfected over generations.

Whether you are packing food at home, picking up take-out or just need a versatile bag, these wraps make it easy to say goodbye to plastic bags, vinyl totes and other leachy food containers.
