Our Leather Craft, Quailty Handbags and Wallets Designed by Hobo
Our Craft-Authentic, Beautiful Leather Purses

AT HOBO, we believe that our personal belongings deserve to be thoughtfully designed with beauty, soul, and purpose. It all begins with the craft of leather, the inspiration from a creative life, and a focus on authentic beauty with an emphasis on utility. The result: eminently wearable pieces that flirt with vintage but are completely of the moment.

The Craft

We are designers who choose our own path. 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 of equal parts beauty and flawless functionality. Meticulously sourced leathers are handpicked for each bag to achieve the ultimate hand, drape, and utility. Our unwavering commitment is to create bags that only get better with use and wear.
