If you know and love the Yumbox – as you undoubtedly do – listen up. Your favourite bento lunchbox has a new best friend, and you won’t be able to live without it. Introducing: the Yumbox Poche.

The Yumbox Poche has undergone a major facelift, with a new pattern and an exciting new feature all part of the upgrade.

The perfect companion for your Yumbox, the Yumbox Poche is specially designed to protect and cool. The compact padded, insulated lunchbox sleeve is slim enough to slip into a school bag, but roomy enough to comfortably fit a Yumbox of any size – yep, even the large Yumbox Tapas! – and Yumbox ice pack, and keeps food cool for hours.

While the Yumbox Poche has been around – and well loved – for years, the new addition to this old favourite has tongues wagging. Behold: the handle.

Yep, no school bag required to easily carry this beauty around all day. The Yumbox Poche now features a handy handle for easy transportation, whether it’s to school, the beach, a picnic or your next family fun day.

The modern design – dreamt up by Yumbox designers in France and the USA – features the same durable fabric and easy pull sports zipper that’s perfect for big and little fingers, as well as a nylon exterior for easy cleaning (simply wipe with a damp cloth!).

But wait, there’s more. With the new addition comes a brand-new pattern: a gorgeous navy and gold star print aptly named ‘Twilight’. A versatile navy option is now available, too. The best part is, whether you opt for the classic design or the new handle-adorned alternative is totally up to you – both versions are currently available.
