Carla Mancini Olivia Hobo | Bohemian Cross Stitched Brown Leather Handbag

Posted on: Aug 15

Carla Mancini Olivia HoboCarla Mancini injects a little extra boho into the hobo style with this Olivia bag.

This hobo breaks a few rules but still celebrates the essence of the style. Its bottom heavy design makes a stable change from the regular crescent, and its more structured leather is another inspired alteration. But it retains its essential hobo-ness with some clever accents.

The cross-stitching decorating the flap is really lovely, as is the braided strap. It's a shame the tassel is obscured by that rounded flap, but it is removable if you prefer a cleaner look.

The Olivia is much smarter than many hobos too. While their slouchy profile makes accessing the interior difficult, this one will sit up happily. It's also got two deep side pockets for storing the items you want on hand. The main compartment is large enough to handle the rest, and luxuriously organized with its leather trimmed pockets.

While I love the look of its braided handle, I know it won't be too comfortable to carry. Thankfully Carla Mancini also offers a much longer flat strap, which won't dig into your shoulder when the hobo's full.

On face value the Olivia's $598 price tag doesn't seem exactly cheap, but it's a bargain for a handcrafted bag. If you've got that cash to spare you'll appreciate the attention to detail that comes with a hobo that hasn't simply fallen off a production line.
