Antique French Linen Hobo

355.00

This is a completely gorgeous antique French linen version of a classic hobo style. It’s just a perfect size for everyday and is actually totally machine washable. The body of each bag is made from an authentic hand-loomed antique european gran sack that is full of history. Each of the original grain sacks has unique striping that represents the individual family or farmer that harvested the grain. They were made in the late 19th century to be super functional and durable, so you can be sure it will wear beautifully.

The hand-cut + finished belting natural leather strap is the perfect width for sitting comfortably on your shoulder. The beautiful natural leather will darken and patina with use and sun exposure. A generous outside snap patch pocket keeps essentials close-at-hand. A hidden magnet at top keeps everything safely inside. The bag is fully lined with white linen and two small pockets inside keep loose treasures safe. This stunning bag is finished with a slender handmade tassel with a gorgeous combination of driftwood, brass, bone and glass beads and a single clay bead made especially for us by a local artist. This is a really special bag. As an added bonus, this bag is entirely machine washable. Before washing, clip off the leather strap and dangly bits. Wash on cold and lay flat to dry.
