Towel Gourd / Packaging Design

Towel Gourd
Towel Gourd

This material can be an overwrap. In my childhood, my grandmother has grown many luffa. Those which are unable to harvest on time, after dry out, they can still use it as a towel gourd. So, it was the thrifty of my grandmother that I realized the environment protection started from the thrifty.

The dried-out luffa is a towel gourd. It is not only reusable, 100% natural, environmental friendly but easy corrosion. Besides, it also has the anti-shaking function. That’s why we wrap the contents like bowl around the towel gourd to anti-broken. Moreover, the removed towel gourd can wash dishes or become heat insulation cushion.
