Today, bohemian style is strongly related to hippie fashion (long flowing hippie garments made from crochet patterns probably come to mind when you think “boho fashion”), but it’s more than a fashion trend — it’s a culture.
The term “bohemian” dates back to the 18th century when it was used to describe France’s “Gypsy” population during the French Revolution.
Since then, the term has become more of an aesthetic movement. Boho backgrounds and patterns adorn everything from textiles and fabrics (that’s why hippie garments and boho-infused accessories are still trendy!) to wallpapers, home decor, and more.
