HOI BO bags

HOI BO is heavily defined by the relationship between shape, structure and process while accounting for the interaction of user and object. The work finds distinction in the marriage of innovation and the love of making things.
~ Sarra Tang, Designer & Owner, HOI BO

Meet Sarra Tang, the Canadian designer behind HOI BO
a true artisan + ‘maker of things’
and everything she makes…
she developes from beginning to end.

HOI BO launched in 2007…
a store + studio in Toronto, Canada where Tang and her team-of-two ‘make’ beautiful things…
clothing, jewellery + her renowned line of hand-crafted HOI BO bags.

Just one glance at a HOI BO bag…
will cause you to want.

They’re innovative + beautiful…

rugged yet elegant.

and love that they’re made to last…
not cast-away items.
