To be fashion forward, unique and original is not easy nowadays. Everything has been done and everyone has seen it all…or at least we think. HOI BO, is a bag and accessory label and a fashion boutique located in the Historical Distillery District in Tdot. The lovely Torontonian designer, Sarra Tang (sister of Hoi-An Tang, jewellery designer and artist http://www.mehoi.com), is in the league of her own with individually handcrafted, fashion forward bags and purses. I was blown away by the beeswax-cotton bags and the kangaroo leather satchel. Talk about progressive use of materials along with unique design. The signature thick, industrial zippers make the bags looks hobo chic and contemporary.
HOI BO bags are top of the line, distinctive, raw, detail oriented and long-lasting.
You can visit HOI BO studio and boutique (55 Mill St., Historical Distillery District, Tdot) or purchase select pieces online at A2Zane. Stocklist and Lookbook can be requested through Hoi Bo’s web-site.
