Secondhand living is my way of life here at EL HOBO. I was brought up extremely thrifty and taught how to do most things on a budget, to reuse and mend instead of buying new.
Ethically made and low carbon impact is a choice we all have as consumers. What was considered thrifty is now environmentally friendly. The fashion industry alone is the second largest polluter in the world after the oil Industry. Re using instead of buying new is THE biggest way to help reduce and help us move forward in this environmental battle.
Homespun folksy Americana inspired lifestyle is EL HOBO’s style. My father always referred to me as ‘the littlest hobo’. Due to my wanderlust nature and collector of used items. EL HOBO style is a collective melting pot of happy 70’s memories. With a passion for worldwide travel, country music and years of a surfing and biker lifestyle.
Beautiful textiles have always been a passion for me. Therefore my travels have exposed me to traditional clothing, styles and textiles. Visiting many countries rich in such items including Morocco, Mexico, India, Indonesia, America and lots of Europe.
