Matilda Varnes Minton was an adventurer and pioneer. She was born and raised in Florida in the 1800s before bug repellent, ice machines, and air conditioning (all of which now make the state far more habitable). She raised seven children in the wilds of old Florida, and is the reason our designer is a 7th generation Floridian (and her children are the 8th)! The Tilda hobo is soft, while roomy, and can accommodate all the modern necessities required for braving the wild world we now inhabit.
