Our Japanese style bento bag is a versatile bag. It’s perfect for eco-friendly shopping! I use it almost every day. I use it for storing goodies. You can use them for shopping , carrying your lunch and snacks, and traveling. It’s easier to wrap goodies than furoshiki cloth. Just tie the top. Even my daughter can wrap, too! They are light-weight and compact!Plus You can be tossed in the wash when it gets dirty.
