Sizes and options of Japanese wrapping cloths

Designed to fit small, medium and large bento boxes, furoshiki cloths come in a variety of sizes. These include:

  • 45-50cm for small, medium, and even some larger-sized bento boxes.
  • 68-70cm for picnic boxes (also called “ojyu bako” in Japanese).
  • Over 90cm: designed for larger boxes and can even be used as a small bag.

Knowing which size furoshiki is best for your needs can be confusing as there are many different options on offer. Let's consider their uses so you can decide which is best for you.

For everyday use

We recommend choosing a smaller-sized furoshiki for everyday use – something between around 50cm. This is because they are big enough to wrap 1 or 2 tiered bento boxes and some smaller picnic bento boxes. They’re incredibly versatile and can also serve as table cloths, cushion covers, and to wrap or cover household items (such as tissue boxes) to add more life to any house décor.

As a fabric gift wrap

Sustainable and durable, using furoshiki for gift wrapping is an eco-friendly option that not only helps to reduce waste, but also adds more uniqueness to your gift. 50cm is a good size to start with, but of course it will depend on the size of the gift. We have a selection of larger sized ones (more than 70cm) for bigger items. 

With the many designs and colours, using furoshiki as gift wraps is a great way to convey your best wishes with a personal touch.

For picnics

If you’re heading out on a picnic using the larger-sized bento boxes, choose furoshiki that are larger than 70cm. This will allow you to wrap your containers without any hassle.

The furoshiki can then serve as a lunch mat or cover food to protect from insects. What’s great is that they are machine-washable, so you can use them again and again for another occasion.

Why you should use an official Japanese furoshiki cloth

We often get asked, wouldn't using any cloth to wrap bento boxes and other items serve the same purpose? The truth is that you can, but the furoshiki is designed perfectly to reflect Japanese culture, design and tradition, and what better item to complement your Japan made bento boxes? Plus, it can be used for virtually anything – from converting into a bag to wrapping your wine bottles.

Ready for a fun fact? Japanese furoshiki cloths actually date back more than 1200 years, when it was originally called ‘tsutsumi’. In those times, the cloths were used to wrap precious objects stored at Japanese temples. Over the years, their use changed, and they are now even used as shopping bags to carry food, items, tools and gifts.
