About Us

WEAVING CONNECTIONS

Homb Page (with a silent b) is the place for accessories for roaming and homing. For the digital nomad, the urban traveler who needs a cozy place to return to. For the innovative thinker who takes inspiration from the past, and the personally ambitious who believe that accomplishing good things for yourself includes improving the lives of others.

We believe that our success is connected to the lives and hardwork of people everywhere. That’s why each product we produce is tied to a cause. $1 from every product purchased goes directly towards sharing that success. Here’s how:

  • Our Rōmb Smart backpacks (say “roam”) come with travel chargers for phones and other digital devices, but they also support renewable energy in places where electricity is not as plentiful.
  • The Bike Loomb laces a bike into a convenient upright position that can be moved to any part of a tiny city apartment, without making damaging holes in the walls. But it also supports the purchase and delivery of bicycles to students and healthcare workers in countries where walking is otherwise the only way to travel long distances to school, work, or people in need of food or medical services.
  • The Ombuds are wireless headphones that leave you free to move and enjoy your sounds, especially in crowded spaces. Traveling on a subway, bus, plane, or up late at night, everyone has a right to peace and quiet or to keep listening. Whether it’s music, podcasts, or audiobooks, supporting public radio means supporting local and independent artists, engaging podcasts, and unbiased news coverage free from the wires of commercial and political funding influence.

We never charge you extra to cover this donation; it comes out of our profit margin.

World Bicycle Relief

For many people in rural regions of developing countries, poverty is a daily reality. In areas where walking is the only mode of transport, a bicycle offers the real and immediate benefit of reliable access to essential goods and services. Powered by the remarkable human spirit, bicycles are a catalyst to possibilities.

Our Values

FUNCTIONAL DESIGN

How often do you buy something that turns out to be not quite right? Maybe it’s useful in some situations, but you need multiple items for each different situation. Maybe you have something very practical, but you don’t really like how it looks or feels.

Marie Kondo popularized the idea that we need to tidy our lives and keep only the things that “spark joy.” We think this especially includes the items that are most practical. You use it every day because you need something that gets the job done, like a backpack, headphones, or your bike storage. Every day you are spending time interacting with the objects in your life. That time should add to your peace of mind, not be another little annoyance. The way something is designed –how it looks and feels to the touch– is important. We strive to make products that are highly useful and versatile, but are designed to  simplify your life by minimizing distraction and sparking small moments of joy through look and touch.
