A bag or often called a purse is typically used by women to hold personal items. However these days’ men are also seen using these bags. In earlier times bags were made to fulfil only one purpose and that was to carry coins. Different sizes of bags were made at that time from very small bags which nowadays are called wallets to large hand bags. At that time young girls were used to do a variety of embroidery on the bags that can make the bags look beautiful.
In earlier times the material that was used to make such bags was only and only leather. Elements were easily derived from the animal skin and that was used initially to make bags. Then as time went by people become highly concerned for the animal rights and they then derived other ethical ways to get leather for the bag. People started using the skin of the dead animals to make the material leather and not to kill animals especially for this purpose. Most commonly leather was used as it is a strong and a durable material, also it does not get fades away easily and remain to look new even after years and years. And that is the reason why a leather bag is still preferred over other bags.
Even a leather bag comes in a wide range of variety. Initially workers used to carve designs on it but nowadays plain leather bags as well as printed leather bags are available widely to provide individuals with an adequate choice to choose from.
