Hobo bag

A hobo bag is a crescent shaped bag with one long strap, designed to wear over the shoulder. The bag can be seen in many sizes and normally holds a flexible structure, made in softer fabric compositions. A hobo bag is designed in such a way to mimic the shape of the bindle stick that a hobo would usually carry over their shoulder and has been donned the name for the same reason.

Hobo bags appeared on trend in the early millennium and is an accessory that can be placed with outfits worn for many occasions.
