PPB Hideaway Hobo Review – Fresh from PPB like you have never seen before


Having been a close fanatic of PPB’s myself  and a somehow silent one for that matter you can bet that I am all smiles right now about the the latest release from Petunia pickle bottom with some of their trendsetting collections that you may have never seen before.


Modern mom carrying PPB Hobo

Petunia just launched some new front bags with a brand new style known as the hideaway hobo. Takes good care of heavy packers too.

I think this new line of diaper bags is making it very clear that Petunia is a brand to watch having established themselves as the creators of original, fashionable and stylish outfitted bags for the modern motherhood.
Season after season, Petunia pickle have busted us with surprises and this one is not just another one but a force to reckon with for the upcoming seasons I guess.


Would you guess this a diaper bag yourself? The hobo is great for moms who like going compact with a fashion sense.

The hideaway hobo has got a large main compartment at the center which is more than big enough to stuck a two blankets comfortably.

Four interior pockets and a couple side bottle pockets with a hidden front zip pocket that comes handy when you are keeping your critical essentials close at hand, think of it as a safe haven for you cell phone and credit cards.
Don’t forget the magnetic snapping closure that also makes it safe without letting items slip unknowingly out of the bag.

The prints are just numerous and colorful enough that I doubt you will miss your favorite one from this list. The list includes the renown Glazed cotton (long live Glazed PPB) and an Embossed fabric for solid moms.
The range also includes a PPB monogrammed wipes case with a well co-ordinates changing pad.
The bottom of the PPB hobo bag is stiffened so it will stand easily without slouching over. This is a must have for the modern century mom.

Don’t forget to steal some comparison with the bags they already released before. You never know! what Petunia is up to until you find out for yourself.

What are cons of the Hideaway hobo so far?

As always, anything good will always have some little nagging con. and what is it for the hideaway hobos?
You  may find it a little tasking to pull out items when using the shoulder straps and thus you may have to sit down the bag before you open it.

No stiff reinforcement within the bag to keep it standing up (You will have to pack it at least to avoid the fall over). However, this cannot keep me from losing such a stylish gem.

As I speak there are already 10 hideaway hobo prints in line.
Here is my top 3 list, from the most catchy one I would never wait to swipe my card to get to the one I would sleep over thinking about before doing a damage to my bank a/c

Hideaway Hobo in Weekend in Windsor


Hobo in Windsor weekend is outfitted with a beautiful shoulder-carry handles together with a fun playful print out easy to clean Glazed cotton canvas. More like the Glazed PPB.


Hideaway Hobo in Paris Noir

This striking outfit is a shoulder carry bag that comes in a brandy jacquard textile from the PPB collection.
The signature collection weaves the iconic PPB Patterns into a sleek softly structured lustre into a forever classic design.

Much softer than what you would encounter with the glazed or the embossed prints of the hobo range.
You can easily say its a sister to the Sashay Satchel in Central Park North Stop or to the boxy backpack in Paris Noir. I think the Boxy backpack in Paris noir is a much better brother.

And here comes the Good News
