The Hobo Tote Caramel
Let the leather do all the talking—because sometimes simple is best. Structured on the bottom, supple and malleable on top, it’s the ideal accessory for travel, folding up neatly in your suitcase, while still accommodating the essentials (like a 15” laptop!) when you’re setting up for an afternoon at the cafe. Business or pleasure, there’s two ways to carry it—with the shoulder straps or the adjustable/removable cross-body strap. Finished with gold-plated metal hardware, high quality metal zippers and our signature Poppy Barley lining.

About the Owner: Husband-and-wife-team José and Maria moved from Spain to Mexico in 1989 to create a better life for their family. Making handbags in their kitchen, they invested $2000 USD to buy a leather-cutting table, a used sewing machine and a trip to L.A. to purchase sheepskin imported from Europe.
About the Factory: The vision was (and continues to be) to make the highest quality products. Today, this factory is recognized as the top handbag producer in Mexico. Together with Poppy Barley, they developed The Perfect Handbag, which launched in December 2015. The Hobo Tote is the next instalment.
We screen all our factories to ensure positive working conditions, including a living wage, full-time permanent employment with benefits, reasonable working hours, vacation and sick benefits, and ongoing training and opportunity.
