Ev­ery­day meals find a clas­sic, eco-friendly ves­sel

There’s a quiet move­ment in the way we eat that in­volves, of all things, un­pack­ing the con­tents of a lunch bag. It’s a con­scious re­claim­ing of the lunch hour from the dic­tate of whim, crav­ing, and sheer con­ve­nience to take con­trol of what we eat and re­build a healthy re­la­tion­ship with eat­ing. Pre­par­ing baon, then, be­comes a tac­tile prac­tice in mind­ful­ness that mer­its, not a kitsch brown pa­per bag as de­pos­i­tory, but a con­sci­en­tious ves­sel in the form of an ecofriendly and lo­cally-made lunch bag.

Husq re-en­vi­sions the lunch bag from chil­dren’s car­toon metal boxes and tita- friendly sacks to a mod­ern bag in clas­sic col­ors. The bag’s ther­mal lin­ing is partly made of co­conut fiber, a nat­u­ral in­su­la­tor, that adds a sus­tain­able touch to this ev­ery­day ac­ces­sory. When the move­ment of the city be­comes too over­whelm­ing, re­claim a few min­utes for your­self. Sit down, open your lunch bag, and chew your (still) hot meal slowly with­out spend­ing on over­priced fare or un­healthy fast food.
