A handbag idea, also called purse or pouch in north american english, is a handled medium-to-large bag used to carry personal items.

Early modern europeans wore purses for one sole purpose: to carry coins. Purses were made of soft fabric or leather and were worn by men as often as ladies; the scottish sporran is a survival of this custom. In the 17th century, young girls were taught embroidery as a necessary skill for marriage; this also helped them make very beautiful handbags. By the late 18th century, fashions in europe were moving towards a slender shape for these accessories, inspired by the silhouettes of ancient greece and rome. Women wanted purses that would not be bulky or untidy in appearance, so reticules were designed. Reticules were made of fine fabrics like silk and velvet, carried with wrist straps. First becoming popular in france, they crossed over into britain, where they became known as "indispensables." men, however, did not adopt the trend. They used purses and pockets, which became popular in men's trousers.

The modern purse, clutch, pouch or handbag idea came about in england during the industrial revolution, in part due to the increase in travel by railway. In 1841 the doncaster industrialist and confectionery entrepreneur samuel parkinson (of butterscotch fame) ordered a set of travelling cases and trunks and insisted on a travelling case or bag for his wife's particulars after noticing that her purse was too small and made from material that would not withstand the journey. He stipulated that he wanted various handbags for his wife, varying in size for different occasions and asked that they be made from the same leather that was being used for his cases and trunks to distinguish them from the then-familiar carpetbag and other travellers' cloth bags used by members of the popular classes.
