hobo bags have been around for a century in the world of fashion and can boast of combining their classic essence, which never goes out of style, with the constant adaptations that keep them as a reference accessory . The mystery and a certain controversy over its name add a few drops of interest to one of the most emblematic bags in the world of handbags and which is distinguished from other designs by its half-moon shape and its relaxed and loose fit.

 Chronicles say that the first hobo bag in the fashion world was created in the United States in 1936 and cost 35 cents. The term hobo also has history, since it was used generically to describe men without work or home, who at the beginning of the 20th century and in the years of the Great Depression, traveled on freight trains and on foot through that country in search of of their subsistence. They carried their belongings in a bundle tied to a stick.And this is, according to legend, the aesthetic and historical origin of the hobo bag. For some, the hobo label, which in English has derogatory meanings, is now incorrect and it would be better to find another label to name this type of bag.

 Easy to identify due to their peculiar shape and to be carried under the shoulder, the women's hobo bags have known infinite versions, all kinds of materials, sizes and approaches, including those of the big brands and catwalks .

The constants speak of a half-moon-shaped bag, held at each end by a strap that may or may not be adjustable. It is characterized by being generally large, made of soft and flexible materials such as leather or suede, which when carried hanging from the shoulder, tends to collapse and fold in on itself.

“Classic, elegant, comfortable, functional… These are some of the adjectives that come to mind when thinking about a hobo bag. A shoulder bag is the most common way to carry the bag and the natural fall of it, folding over itself, is very natural and functional. Personally I love bags without structure or rigidity. Our hobos are like that. They have shape, but they adapt and thanks to their loose fit, they play an interesting game with the body,” explains Laura Gómez, designer and head of Juan-Jo.
