Some Handbag History

The term “purse” originally referred to a small bag for holding coins. In British English, it is still used to refer to a small coin bag. A “handbag” is a larger accessory that holds objects beyond currency, such as a woman’s personal items. American English typically uses the terms purse and handbag interchangeably.

The term handbag began appearing in the early 1900s. Initially, it was most often used to refer to men’s hand-luggage. Women’s bags grew larger and more complex during this period, and the term was attached to the women’s accessory.Handbags are valued for their stylishness as visual accessories as well as for their function.

The modern purse, clutch, pouch or handbag came about in England during the Industrial Revolution, in part due to the increase in travel by railway. The need to organize one’s belongings is universal, thus handbags exist in differing forms in cultures around the world. People have been quite clever in thinking of ways to use the materials at hand to create their bags.
