Toni had been creating unique accessories for years as the co-founder of Georgetown Leather Design in Washington, DC., the 'in' place for the hippie crowd to buy cool leather goods during the 60's and 70's. In those days, the bags were made by hand in the basement of the shop. Toni's handcrafted leather goods were soon recognized as being fashionable and hip. Every piece had her signature style.
Then in 1991, she cashed in her life-savings, bought a beat-up van and convinced her daughter and future son-in-law, Koren and David, to head to New York to sell the first 'Hobo' collection.
Her philosophy for Hobo; women's accessories should be both stylish and practical. Toni believed that quality and 'cool' never go out of style. Her passion for creative design and purposeful details became a way of life at Hobo.
This philosophy resonated with women everywhere who were looking for fun, functional accessories to express their individual style. Over the years, Hobo's handbags and small leather goods have earned a loyal following for their practical features, iconic shapes and affordable pricing. WWD has called Hobo one of the country’s most "fun and funky" accessories brands.
In 2006, Toni turned over the brand to Koren and David Brewer, her family and business partners for those fifteen years. The second-generation Hobos follow the founding principles of fashion and function and still infuse the same passion and creativity into their vision for this ever-expanding lifestyle brand. Koren and her design team stay true to Toni's early philosophies, while exploring new and innovative ways to meet the needs of today's busy, fashion-savvy woman. As an added plus, Koren and David are thrilled to have Toni living two doors down to serve up handbag wisdom and help out with the couple's four kids.
Twenty years later, the Hobo brand has come a long way from handbags designed on the dining room table to a multi-million dollar accessory business. In March of 2012, Hobo opened its first flagship store in downtown Annapolis, MD, showing support and loyalty to its hometown and local community. The true heritage spirit of crafting fashionable, smart accessories in quality materials remains the driving philosophy of the company today.
I bought this bag in the caramel/black combination, and it is both gorgeous and practical as well as simple and elegant. The buttery-soft leather has a beautiful finish, and there's just enough structure to make the bag a little dressier than it might otherwise have been, which is not to say that you can't take it to the grocery store. The bag also holds a lot more than you'd expect given its depth: a large hairbrush and cosmetic bag, wallet, and glasses on the inside plus a cellphone in one easy-to-access outer pocket and keys in another outer zippered pocket. The inside pockets along with the red and white fabric on the inside makes it very easy to find things quickly. Thank you, Hobo, for making a bag that's well worth the money and, of course, thank you, Zappos, for providing a hassle-free shopping experience!

This bag is beautiful. It's a great size, and can carry a lot if you like. However, it's designed so that you can put your car keys in the large zip pocket on the side, and slide your cell phone in the pocket for the other. Perfect. The inside has two nice zip pockets, one of which is big enough for a small tablet. (I haven't measured it; it might be in the Item Description.) The main compartment is a great size, and keeps its rectangular shape nicely. Holds my wallet, checkbook and any minor paperwork with room to spare. It's not big enough to act as a bag/briefcase, but I didn't want it for that. The zip top allows the bag to open freely and easily from end to end. I am a little concerned that the zipper sticks a little at the starting end, so I'm being careful with that. The straps are a nice length and are nice and smooth; I don't like stiff or bulky straps. Sometimes one strap or the other will droop off my shoulder, but it hasn't been a big issue. Very happy with the bag; can't speak about durability because I've only had it for a little while, but so far so good. I'm enjoying it.
