Established in 2004, hobo creates luggage to satisfy the urban lifestyle. Additionally, hobo balances practicality with the ornate with a range of accessories, including jewellery, key chains, headwear, footwear and more. hobo takes its name from the travelling worker of 19th century America; this name honours the independent spirit of the journeymen who wandered the American railways in search of work, with their possessions packed into a small bag. hobo's designs focus on utility, texture, form and detail; each piece is produced with quality materials and hardware. With nearly all manufacturing in Japan, each product takes on characteristics aligned with traditional Japanese craftsmanship and attention to detail.
