A guide to buying leather hobo handbags

The hobo bag was named after the loose, slouchy bags that hobos carry, but there the resemblance ends. These bohemian chic purses or handbags which are identified by their crescent shape and long shoulder strap have become popular and trendy. Embellished with designs, buckles, fringes and tassels, the leather hobo has become the best-selling style of purse. From department stores to discount outlets, there is a leather hobo bag to fit every budget.

What to look for in a hobo bag

Shoulder straps are an important hobo bag feature Most hobo bags are big enough to carry an assortment of goods. Large hobo bags can get quite heavy, so a sturdy shoulder strap is a must. An adjustable strap is a nice feature. It is often more comfortable to carry a hobo bag with a long strap rather than one that is held too close under the shoulder. Zippers and compartments A good hobo bag will close with a zipper. This is a handy feature, as since the bag is slouchy, an open hobo bag without a zipper may allow contents to spill out when the bag is set down. A zippered outer pouch for keys and other loose items is another good feature. Good quality leather Hobo bags should be made of good quality, medium leather. A darker colour will hold up better to wear and stains than a tan or white purse.
