    THE STORY BEHIND HOBO

    1975

    "In my earliest memories I am playing with scraps of leather under the craft bench in the  "50s leather shop where my mom, Toni Ray, learned her trade.  She taught me that it all begins with the craft of leather and the belief that possessions we own are made better with the richness of experience"
