History of Replica Designer Handbags
The use of women’s bags was first mentioned in written literature in the 14th century. However, ancient Egyptian hieroglyphs already showed women carrying pouches around their waist during these ancient times. These bags were attached to their girdles and securely fastened to their waist. Even since then, these pouches were already used to show one’s status – the more elaborate the embroidery and jewels on these items, the richer the person must be.
During the 16th century, leather was used with a drawstring fastener. Travelers already used a big cloth bag that they carried diagonally across their body. In the 17th century, purses for both men and women have taken complex shapes. They already showed more artwork such as stitches made by the women themselves to show that they are “marriageable.” The 18th century showed a reduction in the layers of clothing used by women. Instead of fastening their purse to their clothing, they opted to carry it. They called their purses as “reticules” and these items usually contained cosmetics such as face powder, as well as perfume, fan, visiting cards, smelling salts, and a card case.
The term “handbag” was first used in the early 1900s, generally referring to men’s hand-held luggage. This became the inspiration for the type of handbag that women use now. Jewelers also came up with compartments in the modified bag for cosmetics, fans, and opera glasses like what all the modern LV Speedy bags now have.
The 1920s gave way to lighter clothing and instead of matching their bag to their clothing, women carried around dolls that were dressed like them and with a miniature purses, too. In the 1940s, materials for making handbags were in scarce supply. Designers used plastic and wood to replace metal frames, leather, mirrors, and zips. The 1950s, however, started the rise of design houses like Louis Vuitton, Chanel, and Hermes and a decade after, the world witnessed the start of the youth culture that continues until today.
