Believe it or not, the hobo handbag style was actually inspired by the homeless street folk (“hobo’s”) who would often bundle all their possessions into a large pouch and either carry that over their shoulder or tie it to a pole, slung over the shoulders!
To this day, hobo handbags are still largely unstructured, roomy and very casual. It's usually a shorter handbag slung over the shoulder and carried under arm - this gives the wearer some degree of safety. But nothing beats its casual, slouchy look and the large storage capacity!
Over the years, the hobo handbag has been reinvented in a myriad of designs and details from small to oversized, plain to fringed, with feature zips, sparkly stones etc. You dream it, they've made it!
The hobo handbag is the perfect handbag for daily use. It's perfect to wear to work in the week and carry around over the weekends with jeans. Lookout for long straps and features like zips for quick and easy storage!
It's also the perfect gift idea for the modern woman, nearly impossible to go wrong with a stylish hobo handbag!
