Husq’s bags will help you reclaim your lunch hour
All the thought you put into your baon deserves to be packed in a bag just as conscientiously designed
Jan 19, 2017
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 eco-friendly 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.
