    General Information

    Classic, uncomplicated and easy to combine

    This sporty and elegant hobo bag has absolutely nothing vagabond about it, yet the name of the bag shape goes back to the English "hobo". Presumably because it is reminiscent of the bundles of cloth in which vagabonds usually carried their belongings on a stick over their shoulder. The most famous representative of the hobo bag is probably the Gucci model designed for Jackie Kennedy in 1961. Since then, the hobo bag has had a firm place among the classic bag shapes, which is certainly more due to its suitability for everyday use than its famous wearer. Thanks to its simple, typical shape - with rounded corners and a short shoulder strap - the bag can be combined with both classic office outfits and sporty leisure outfits.

    Our hobo bag is woven from fine strips of supple, vegetable-tanned buffalo leather. The production requires not only some skill, but also some time, as all the work steps are carried out by hand. The raised sides that hold the double leather handle are particularly elaborate. The spacious main compartment is lined with cotton twill in a matching color. Two neatly leather-lined slip pockets and a small zippered compartment hold your phone and small items. The opening is also lined with leather on the inside and has a magnetic fastener.

    Specialist in hand braided leather. Allan K

    Belgian label Allan K is considered a specialist in bags and shoes made of hand-braided leather. Founder Alain Kadic sums up the passion for his company and the products in one sentence: "Braided leather is in my DNA." No wonder, since the company's genesis dates back to the 1960s, when his father Ivan Kadic, an engineer with an inventive spirit, developed a spiral cutter capable of cutting a narrow strip hundreds of feet long from a leather hide. Many of his inventions, including an automatic leather weaving machine, soon find their way around the world.

    In the 1980s, Alain Kadic, now an engineer himself, followed in his father's footsteps and traced the machines to India. Here, the craft of leather weaving has a long tradition. After working with various leather weaving companies for several years, he finally founded the Allan K brand in 2012 and from then on had his designs manufactured in Madras. The timeless-classic shoes and bags made of woven and braided leather are handmade there, which can take up to five days depending on the model. The leather for them is still cut on the machines that his father developed at the time.
