are those scarves available for purchase at muji? It seems really helpful for when i need to do work outside in the heat. Like a keffiyah without the social implications.

you could probably fashion your own, they are just square pieces of fabric.

I love Muji. a very cool store that I used to frequent once a month when I lived in Tokyo. modern designs and reasonable price. I would compare it to Ikea but without the huge range and 20 versions of one thing.

im sorry, whats a Muji man?....pretty cool though...:P

That seems far less helpful than this

hehe... I like the idea of giving people an incentive to do their own research, I really do. In this case, though, the first page of google really contains nothing useful to explain what a muji man is. From the pictures, I would have assumed muji was a pizza place. From wikipedia, I'm led to believe it's this company which makes pretty much everything, and is known for its well-designed eco-friendly-packed brandname/logo-free goods. Sounds like a nice company. I've still got no idea what that has to do with the muji man in this instructable though. Nice try!

No, that's a subtle hint to make the effort to look things up yourself. :) Google is your friend.

lol that is actually really cool!
