About Joe Hobo

Joe Hobo is a line of accessories that are handmade by Joey Johnson. Her denim products are repurposed from vintage pre-used clothing or new fabrics and sometimes a combination of both. Joey is detail-oriented, often cutting smaller shapes from denim of varying colors and shades to achieve unique patchwork fabric designs that she then transforms into fashionable, yet practical accessories—like hats that are lined with satin, a material that helps hair retain moisture or belt bags with a convenient slot for a cell phone and a grommeted opening for wired earbuds or beanbag poufs designed to be filled with soft keepsakes like baby clothes or stuffed animals while serving as a comfortable place to sit or use as a foot prop. Joey also makes novelty items like denim teddy bears, blankets, small furniture, keychains, and original acrylic art on canvas or wood. Her artisan products celebrate the comfort, nostalgia, and melancholy of her personal experiences as a woman, an empathic creative, and a mother.
