This hobo-style bag is enormous, big enough to carry a beach towel or even a change of clothes for an overnight trip; it would make an excellent carry-on travel bag. It features two large exterior zippered pockets, one sewn into the extra deep side gusset and another along the front of the bag. On the inside, there are two slip pockets and another zippered pocket.


The feature fabric is an out-of-print favorite of mine, an array of vintage-style poison and chemical advertisements in warm shades of dark pumpkin and greys. The upper fabric is an upholstery weight linen-viscose blend that looks like grey marble, a lovely contrast to the cotton print. The bottom panel is a sturdy grey vinyl with four bronze-finish feet to prevent stains and prolong the life of the bag. The shoulder strap combines both fabrics for an elegant touch.
