Is A Purse The Same Thing As A Handbag?

These days, at least in the United States, the words "purse" and "handbag" are usually used to refer to the same type of item: A type of accessory carried by an individual that is used to hold personal items such as a wallet, keys, hair comb or brush, or a long list of other items the purse carrier chooses to include.

In the past, though, a purse and a handbag were different types of items. At one time the word "purse" was used to refer to a small pouch that held coins and/or paper money. A handbag, on the other hand, was the larger item (described in the previous paragraph) used to hold a variety of personal items, often including a purse.

Below: A red cowhide purse. While cowhide purses are often desired for the beautiful, natural look of the cowhide, leather/cowhide does accept dye very well. This one has the best of both worlds: You can see the beautiful natural grain of the cowhide which looks great with the bright red color.
