Bags have been around for hundreds of years and have been used by both men and women.Bags and purses came in a variety of designs for a number of purposes, such as bags with clasps, leather pouches and purses with long drawstrings. With the exception of some rare shoulder bags, these were all worn attached to the belt or girdle. The introduction of pockets towards the end of the 16th century meant that the men’s bags slowly disappeared in the course of the 17th century. From then on, bags belonged almost exclusively to the women’s domain.
In the 20th century, art and fashion movements came and went in rapid
succession and the handbag evolved alongside. However, women’s
emancipation was the most influential factor in the shaping of the
handbag. More and more women were employed and as they became more
mobile, their handbags had to meet a growing variety of practical needs.
I LOVE BAGS!!!😍😍😍
