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.
