What is Boho

The term ‘Boho’ is short for Bohemianism, used in the early 19th century to describe the non-traditionalist lifestyles, culture and fashions of voluntarily poverty stricken artists, writers, actors and musicians across Europe.

Bohemians were known to have values that were very anti-establishment, eschewing traditional political policies and family structures. Proponents of the Boho counterculture were known to meet in coffee houses and cafés to discuss their beliefs while ingesting large quantities of alcohol and altering their state of mind with drugs such as opium and absinthe.

In France, circa 1800, artists and creators began to move in droves to low-rent, lower class gypsy neighborhoods…and as most French believed that Gypsies emigrated from Bohemia, the name stuck fast for all residents.
