Ladies Bags and Purses

Just like today there are distinct differences between the styles of bags worn by women and those worn by men. Ladies purses tended to be soft drawstring bags worn on a long cord. The 14th century examples are generaly square and they become rounder and more elaborate in the 15th and 16th centuries. In the 17th century it becomes common to have a purse on a short belt loop although drawstring purses are still common.
