Everyday, I would pack a meal and carry it around in a plastic shopping bag. At the end of the day, my meals were leaking because their boxed had topped over, the bag was full of holes from my cutlery, and I would end up throwing it away.
I was fed up of wasting plastic, so I decided to sew myself a lunch bag. However, I wanted to make sure I could clean it easily if anything spilled, which was difficult with the rigid nature of the bag.
I finally settled on the idea of a lunch bag that opens completely to double as a table mat. This makes it more practical for cleaning and eating.
Press buttons keep the corners nice and tight, which provides a sharp structure
