Handbag Made from Canvas + Genuine Leather
The Hobby is perfect everyday handbag. Worn as a shoulder bag or across your body to be hands free, the Hobby is big enough to hold your everyday essentials, plus a little more.
The Hobby is named after Mrs. Oveta Culp Hobby, wife of former Texas Governor William P. Hobby. A strong and courageous woman, Mrs. Hobby began her career after graduating from University of Texas Law School at the Texas House of Representatives. A writer at heart, she eventually went to work for the Houston Post-Dispatch. During a time when women working as executives were almost unheard of, she proudly served as the executive vice president chair of the newspaper. Mrs. Hobby went on to publish books on parliamentary law, serve as the Chief of the Women's Division of the Bureau of Public Relations in the War Department and was a founder of the Women's Auxiliary Army Corps. She worked in radio and television, and played an active role in the election of President Dwight D. Eisenhower. She continued on to become the director of the Federal Security Administration (FSA) and the first secretary of the Department of Health, Education and Welfare. Mrs. Hobby was the second woman in history to ever hold a U.S. Cabinet position.
The Hobby handbag represents a woman who will go down in history as one of the most courageous and empowered women of her time. Not only does this bag honor an incredible leader, it empowers modern day women who are paving a path for themselves amidst challenges. Each part and piece of the Hobby is handcrafted by military spouses across the country, allowing them to earn flexible, mobile income in a transient life with their soldier.

We love using real veg tanned leather in our handbags because they just better with age. If you happen to get scratches or water marks, you can usually get the bag looking new again with just a little maintenance.

Canvas Care Suggestions:
When spot cleaning the canvas, we suggest using a brush or sponge with water only to wipe it off soiled area. We do not recommend using anything other than water as it could discolor canvas material.
