Introduction: Becoming a Muji Meal Man

While in the mothership Muji in Tokyo, a friend admired the unique headdress of the Muji meal men, so I captured the unique method of creating this look, in order for us to recreate it when home. This is an easy step by step guide on how to look like a Muji meal man!

Step 1: Step 1

Fold Square scarf in half in front of you

Step 2: Step 2

Place folded scarf on head

Step 3: Step 3

Wrap scarf around your head holding the ends tightly

Step 4: Step 4

Tie tightly at the front

Step 5: Step 5

Ensure the knot is tight enough

Step 6: Step 6

This is how the back should look!

Step 7: Step 7

Tuck the extra material up into the tight bit

Step 8: Done

tadaaa!!! I recommend to accompany with Muji pizza bread and Muji beer! Many thanks to our Muji pal!

    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.

    Wanna see the back after its tucked in..aaah need the ending to this story.

    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!


    is today sarcams day? ive gotten that comment like 3 different times....GAHHH!!!

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


    the second last pic died on me.. its an awesome instructable but I dont get how to "tuck it in" the back without the photo.
