Hobo was founded in 1991 by Toni Ray in Annapolis, Maryland on her dining room table.

Toni had been creating unique accessories for 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.

Then in 1991, she cashed in her life-savings, bought a beat-up van and headed up 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.
