The hobo handbag is a style of purse characterized by its crescent shape and slouchy appearance. It actually did get its name from the appearance of the bags that homeless people used to carry slung over their shoulder tied to a stick. Hobos are a classic and favorite type of bag and we have a lot of them to show you! We have a variety of hobo style handbags including designer inspired hobo purses and zebra print hobo handbags. These purses fit the description of a hobo because they are pretty large, have longer handles that you can sling over your shoulder, and have a general crescent shape. They are also more "slouchy" and don't have a defined shape. These hobo purses are popular and never go out of style. Check out our selection!
