The bag is known today primarily as an object of female desire, long ago to the daily companions of the modern gentleman. But in particular the handbag free only slowly by the stigma as a primarily female accessory, while she was held alike over the centuries by men as well as women. We look back on the beginnings of the bag and reveal how these actually came to her eyes.
From the belt bag to the hunting bag
Grave findings in the mine Profen, you know that our ancestors used coarse edited animal skins over 4,500 years ago to store their tools. A truly temporary construction, but nevertheless the go-ahead for one of the most important accessories of our time – the Pocket. Through much of its history, the bag was indeed worn as simple to tie bag around the waist or attached in secret under the big clothes.
Finally first gender-specific differences in terms of Pocket shape and ornamentation evolved over the course of time. While the men were their valuables in a practical belt bag with him until in the late middle ages , the female gender kept her possessions and goods mainly in small rock bag. Later, the bag has become the status object and freed from their initially purely functional shape.
In the 17th century, first established themselves in noble circles sumptuously embroidered hunting bags made of precious materials and represented well the social status of the wearer. Speaking of opulent adornment: the pompous copy of elector Maximilian I of Bavaria in the year 1630 was far too heavy for the hunting, but knew the Regent with its Green Velvet bag to impress – the elaborate embroidery made of gold and silver left no doubt as to the blue-blooded origin of their owner.
How did the bag to their handles
A major step the bag, however, with the Reticule, polemical also took» ridicule «which was held for the first time in hand and emerged from the female hand working bag of the Biedermeier period baptized. The known today handles in turn came in the wake of her new role as a travel companion to the Pocket and sealed to circa 1875 for the time being also the end of the man’s pocket.
The men’s fashion of the 19th century practiced in moderation – objectively and the gentleman showed solid and above all without bag. Only in the 20th century, the man’s Pocket went back to the dressing room and has since become a fixture among the male accessories.
In the meantime, an extensive selection of bags available is the modern gentleman. Whether the occasion and the personal taste decide first and foremost classical Briefcase, fashionable shoulder bag or lightweight document set.
