25 Types of Handbags (1 – 5)

1. Backpack Purse

This is smaller than a backpack, just like its name. Because of the fact that it is one of the biggest handbags in the list of these 25 types of handbags, this is definitely the only casual kind of bag. Still, some backpack purses are large enough to be actually used as a standard backpack. That being said, there are a number of high-end designers who seem to be interested in challenging the idea that large and loose is definitely meant for casual wear. At the same time, a fairly common choice for sportswear as well because of the convenience and size.

2. Baguette Bag

This bag’s name takes its name after the French bread for which it resembles. Baguette bag is quite a small handbag with one or two short straps that makes it great to use with elegant clothes. That being said, the baguette bag is still often a little too big to be brought to a formal affair and often is paired with a smart trouser suit or a more eclectic style. It was first popularized by Sarah Jessica Parker in the movie “Sex and the City”, where this bag soon became one of the first “it” bags.

3. Barrel Bag

This bag is often confused with baguette bag even though the baguette bag is designed to lay flat.

Anyway, the basket bag is best suited for a slightly more casual look, though the configuration and size can give some room to experiment.

5. Bowling Bag

A Brief History of Messenger Bag

Messenger bags also go through a handful of other names, including travel and courier bags. They were also initially used to carry letters and other mailings, even as early as in ancient times. Among others, bike messengers and Pony Express staff were the first to carry messenger bags. And today in the UK, some couriers from the Royal Mail used oversized messenger bags bags instead of regular messenger bags.

The first modern messenger bag was actually the bag used by utility linemen in the 1950s. It was designed by the De Martini Global Canvas Company and its purpose was to accommodate all the tools that were needed by linemen when going up electricity poles to fix them. The initial messenger bag was made of cotton fabric and lined with a waterproof fabric. The shoulder strap was also made of cotton and webbed, closed bag with two straps and also had a pocket inside for bills. These bags were not sold in stores, but issued to and by various courier companies based in New York.

Globe Canvas was the main supplier of this bag for most of these companies in New York during the 70s and 80s Back then, messengers received their bags from their employers and it showed who worked for whom only by the color of their bag. The De Martini bag received a facelift in 1984 when John Peters first made it nylon and added binding and buckles and light-reflecting stripes. And so, with these simple additions, the fashion madness for messenger bags begun. It is worth noting that before these bags made specifically for cyclists emerged, fashion brands make similar products modeled after map case bags used by the military. They have been in use for over a hundred years.
