A food-safe, reusable wax paper bag with a rectangular gusset from Matsunoya.
The paraffin-coated paper has been used in Japan for over 13 centuries to wrap or store contents such as tobacco leaves, fish and rice. They are water-resistant yet breathable, and the small-size gusseted bag is suitable for storing food or dry goods, and makes a perfect gift bag.
In recent years, the brown wax paper bags are popular for its sustainability and beautiful, retro-warm quality. They are suitable for wrapping up picnic lunch, organizing vegetables in the refrigerator, or gifting baked goods. The paraffin makes the paper translucent, creating a smooth, almost leathery surface, and also attractive when crinkled.
