MATERIALS

As always, EL HOBO pieces are made responsibly with hand selected vintage, thrifted and despairingly distressed or displaced historic heirloom textiles, expertly hand-cut, preserved and sewn into beautiful pieces.

Although we take the utmost care to ensure all of our products meet the highest quality standards, imperfections, aging and wear are part of the soul that we celebrate in these beautifully weathered textiles.

All pieces are one, or a few, of a kind, therefore slight pattern layout differences may occur.

EL HOBO clothes are created from secondhand materials. The ideas I get usually come from the material itself and evolve from there. It’s hard working with used materials as you are governed by its size and pattern on that one piece. This is very eco as you will use every last little bit and what’s left over use for something else. I have now introduced homewares into my range.

When I come up with a design and only have one piece of that vintage or used material that finished garment will be totally unique for you. I take time to cut the material getting the best of its design pattern and if possible using the bias to create movement. When making dresses I like to line the bodice when necessary to give it some definition, even if it’s just the neckline to create shape.

I try to line most jackets to hide the seams and focus as much on the inside as the outside. It’s not just about making something to wear. It’s about creating an item that you will love and that it will last. I add pockets where I think it needs pockets. And pleating for shape and try to make an item as comfortable and wearable as possible. A good site is GEM which I like to sell and buy from.

BESPOKE MADE

Handmade small batch and bespoke clothes take time to make, therefore they will cost more. So much more work is involved to create something totally unique. I hand dye fabric and like to experiment with natural dyes. Each thing comes out a little different whether I dye the whole fabric or just dip dye parts of it. I like to use fabric and leather paints to do designs on bags and jackets. Finishing off edges in a triple blanket stitch with wool.

CARE INSTRUCTIONS

All EL HOBO clothes are better if hand washed in cool/warm water with care and a soft detergent like woolite. Spot clean where necessary and hang up to air. Never put in with heavily coloured items and always wash separately. Vintage items can be machine washed depending on washing instructions if their are any. If in doubt hand wash. Jackets and coats can be spot cleaned, suede or leather usually needs dry cleaning.
