Handbags, also called purses or pouches in North America, are handheld medium-to-large bags that are fashionably designed and are used to hold personal items. Handbags are treasured because of their stylishness as visual accessories as well as for their function.
The term "purse" originally referred to a small bag for holding coins. In Britain, it is still used to refer to a small coin bag. A "handbag" is a larger accessory that holds objects beyond currency, such as personal items. Americans typically use the terms purse and handbag interchangeably.
The term "handbag" appeared in the early 1900s. Initially, it was 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 women's bags as well.
