How to look fashionable with hobo bags?

Your brain is in all-question mode. What’s a hobo bag ? What is the difference between a hobo bag and a handbag? Well, well don't whizz out, we are here to fill up on all that you need to know about trendy hobo bags.

The stylish hobo bags were originally inspired by immigrant workers in America around the 19th century, who were called hobos. They carried their belongings in a sack tied like a bundle and hung them on a stick; they would even carry these bundles on their shoulders and that is how the Fashion industry got their idea of creating fashion hobo bags. The first crude version of the hobo bag was launched way back around 1936 under the name Gilda. 

Hobos are usually made of soft flexible fabrics that tend to slouch when kept down or taken over the shoulder. Roughly shaped like a crescent and resembling a bindle on a stick these bags were largely popularized by celebrities like Mary Kate, Paris Hilton, Ashley Olsen, etc especially because the hobo culture was very sought after at that time.

 The hobos came back again around 2017 under the name of Gabrielle, but this hobo had a firm base with a pure leather appeal, and since then many established brands around the world followed Karl Lagerfeld’s footsteps and the hobos have stayed in fashion ever since.

 Zouk has beautifully amalgamated the very authentic version of hobos with Gabrielle’s structured appeal and has produced a beautiful structured hobo bag and has a whole new collection of cool hobo bags.


The first thing that women fall in love with hobo bags when they type and search what’s a hobo bag is the quirky shape with a long sling. This bag is definitely not for the faint-hearted and is a wonderful addition for someone trying to experiment with her outfits. There has been a lot of experimentation with hobo bags breaking off from the traditional slouch look to a firm base and even a structured appeal.
