Georgia & Kamawanu” bento furoshiki (lunch box) is now available.

Mrs. Anano Sichinava, who posts her daily bento box life on her Instagram account while raising three children, desires to let many people know about Georgia's charm. The furoshiki (Japanese wrapping cloth) is designed with motifs representing Georgia, such as "grapes," as it is known as the birthplace of wine, as well as Georgian traditional dishes such as "Shqmeruli" and "Khachapuri." Motifs representing Japan, such as "sumo" and "bento," are also designed, creating a design where you can enjoy the cultures of Georgia and Japan.

The 50cm square furoshiki, perfect for wrapping bento boxes, is dyed by artisans using the traditional dyeing technique called "hand printing," which involves hand-dyeing.

This furoshiki is not just for bento boxes. It can wrap fruit, Churchkhela, or even be worn as a stylish bandana. It's a must-have for bento box enthusiasts and those curious about Georgia's culture.
