A style for everyone
hobo's summer collection launches on Saturday, June 25th
Introducing the broad range of bags from this lineup
Tokyo-based brand hobo prides itself on using highly-skilled Japanese craftsmen to produce all their bags and accessories.
All materials and processes are thoughtfully considered, using Japanese fabrics and techniques where possible.
This summer, hobo’s bag lineup has something for everyone, from classic rucksack styles and spacious carry-all totes, to elegant cowhide shoulder bags.
Extremely versatile to complement almost any situation and wardrobe, the simplicity and quality of each item ensure continued use through many seasons to come.
We share the hobo collection below.
Artisan shoulder bag with unique handle
Large shoulder bag made from a linen and cotton blended fabric produced in small quantities from start to finish by craftsmen in Japan's Enshu region. The fabric's refining, bleaching, and dyeing processes are all carried out by hand and dried naturally in the sun to preserve its texture. The quality and natural appearance are accentuated by its unusual shape and distinctive handle and button and loop closure.
Two-way bag with large storage capacity
Made using the same linen cotton blended fabric is this roomy two-way bag. Lined with canvas for added durability, the thick, wide shoulder strap distributes weight evenly and is ideal for carrying heavy loads. For grocery shopping or an overnight stay, this bag is a handy addition to any household.
A two-part set to keep your essentials organized
Two small pouches crafted from premium leather, which develop a unique patina over time. Ideal for when you need just your essentials, the smaller case can fit your cards and bills, while the bigger of the two has enough space for your cellphone, keys, and a few cosmetics. The leather shoulder strap keeps the two pouches attached, which is also handy when used in conjunction with a bigger bag, to keep your valuables organized.
Spacious and durable two-way tote
Crafted from a paraffin-coated material often used for tents and canopies, this bucket-shaped tote bag is water-repellent and extremely durable. Firm enough to stand up on its own, this large bag is the ideal receptacle for carrying and storing tools and gear when camping, or for trips to the grocery store. Complete with handles and shoulder straps, plus a small internal pocket.
BUCKET TOTE BAG

'90s-inspired nylon backpack
Comfortable to carry and endlessly versatile, there is a reason that the standard nylon backpack has stood the test of time. Made from a high-strength, air textured yarn (ATY) nylon fabric, this simple backpack features thick, cushioned shoulder straps for hands-free comfort and is finished with long leather zip pulls. The internal laptop sleeve makes this bag ideal for school or work.
Simple and elegant cowhide sacoche
This sacoche is made of soft, unrefined leather that has been left with scratches and uneven coloring to bring out the original texture of the material. It is comprised of one large zipped pocket which forms a front flap that can be left unfolded to increase capacity. The shoulder strap length can be adjusted with metal press studs, or removed altogether to be used as an oversized clutch.
Clean and compact, to suit any outfit
This basic, no-frills waist bag is an ideal addition to any wardrobe. Made from tough ATY nylon, it is made up of a main zippered compartment with an additional back pocket, perfect for stowing valuables. Finished with an adjustable strap and long leather zip pull.
The classic nylon messenger bag
This messenger bag is also crafted from the same, durable ATY nylon in an array of vibrant hues, lending itself to its retro aesthetic. Simple in construction and surprisingly spacious, this bag features the typical seatbelt strap and buckle for smooth adjustment. A timeless addition regardless of age or gender.
