Jessica Miles is the founder and current maker of Hobo Beautiful, it all started after years of travelling around europe in a van. Wanting to have a hobby to align with the simple nomadic life. As a sculptor by trade, working with her hands comes naturally, so when her mother handed her the Reader’s Digest introduction to macrame from the 80s it seemed perfect, after a few knots she never looked back.
