HAND-PICKED LEATHERS     |     TIMELESS DESIGNS     |     FLAWLESS FUNCTIONALITY

At HOBO, our unwavering commitment is to create bags that only get better with use & wear...

It all begins at the craft bench with our nostalgic tribute to the methods and soul of the 70’s and our enduring design philosophy that balances beauty & utility - the result, eminently wearable pieces that only get better with age.

Koren’s relationship with leather craft started as a child growing up in her mother’s store watching artisans hand-make leather goods. Truly a child of the 70’s, these influences remain the lens that defines Hobo’s aesthetic...

Handcrafted nuances, respect for the details, vintage touches, celebrating the imperfections of leather and an admiration for timelessly cool shapes to love forever.
