Types of Handbag
Handbags are used for putting all sorts of useful items in. Wallets and purses, hairbrush, gloves, mobile phones, sweets, cosmetics and keys are all typically carried in handbags.
There are so many types of handbag you really are spoilt by the range.
There are clutch bags that are long but yet small and rectangular and these bags have no handle. This type of handbag is traditionally carried for evenings out.
Duffle bags are a large type of bag that is usually used for sports or when travelling. A satchel, much like the bags used for school, is a soft-sided bag often made of leather and used for carrying books or important business papers. Satchels have a strap or handles. A tote is a medium to large-sized very popular type of bag with two handles.
A messenger bag has a long strap that can be worn across the body, while a sling bag is very similar but of a smaller size to a messenger bag.
A new type of bag is the laptop purse that has a padded interior and is used for carrying laptop computers and ensuring they are kept safe while travelling.
So many types of handbag to choose from you are sure to find one that is just right. Or maybe you would want to buy more than one handbag as gifts?
Wikipedia informs us that a shopping survey that was conducted at the Lakeside Shopping Centre in Essex, England, discovered that "the average 30-year-old woman owns 21 handbags and buys a new one every three months, adding up to 111 over the course of a lifetime."
