History of women's handbags The use of handbags for storing things goes back centuries. The first handbags were made of leather and fur and were used to store essentials such as food and water. In Ancient Egypt and Rome, women also used handbags to store cosmetics and jewelry.
Traditionally, during feudal times, people, regardless of gender, kept small items and money in leather bundles, that is, small wallets. These bags were worn on the belt. Richer segments of the population could afford various decorations for such a handbag, embroidery or other decorative trim.
Handbags come in a variety of sizes - from miniature clutches, ideal for evening events, to spacious shopping bags that are convenient to carry everything you need. Also, handbags can be made of different materials, such as leather, suede, textiles, plastic and many others.
