Hobo is a family of bags. Hobo is also a light!

Hobo lantern

Hobo lantern is a portable luminary inspired by the urban nightlife of Zona Tortona during design week. Hobo comes to life with an energy-efficient LED light source glowing through its delicate pattern of translucent fibres.

Hobo felt bag

This natural felted wool bag is perfect for day-to-day use and is available in natural heathered grey or black. The elliptical base transitions to meet in a straight line at the bag’s opening which fastens with hidden magnets. This geometry creates a generous three-dimensional volume that is both visually unique and practical in its capacity. The bag’s durable construction and sturdy but soft material allows it to be used for carrying a heavy load of books, groceries, or as a carry-all day bag. felt bag can be comfortably carried over-the-shoulder or used as a handbag. Use the pocket inside to store smaller items such as phone and pens.
