Discount Western Purses

An integral piece of a woman's outfit is her purse. It's much more than just a pouch to carry essentials. It's a style statement, a method to express her ultimate creativity, glamour, taste, love for luxury and herself and also fashion. Purses come in so many different styles, colors, fabrics, designs, shapes and brand names and prices. There are purses for all occasions, from the very simple daily use to the most intricate and gorgeous of styles for evening wear. One unique category in handbags are the Western style purses, which have their own unique flavor and style. Western Style purses are usually made with leather, have etched designs, and offer a very unique southern style to them that reflects Country Western culture. The stitching is also unique on Western purses, as it usually larger, the bags are also more heavy weight and sturdier because of the use of tougher leathers. The cowgirl style purses are usually etched with interesting designs, have rhinestones. It is also common to have metal studs engraved into the Western styles of handbags. Another hallmark design element of these bags is fringe or tassles. While traditionally darker leather colors are used such as rich and supple browns, these days the Western style comes in bold colors like hot pink and orange, and also combinations of various color, such as red on brown and pink with brown. These bags can be found in all styles, but popular ones include, Totes, and Cross Body bags styles with a Western design. One of the top designers of these bags is Montana West.

General History of Western Purses

The origin of purses commenced with medieval women and men carrying sacks for religious items, medicines and seeds. Purses were used, to display signs of standing and wealth, by their embroidery, shells and decoration. They were worn under the medieval garb or attached to the girdle to camouflage a person's wealth.

  • 14th And 15th Century- Egyptian hieroglyphs illustrated sacks being lugged around the waists. Jewels, which showed a person's wealth, adorned the elegant pouches.Ornate drawstring purses called "Hamondeys"or "Tasques" were the women's favorite.
  • Medieval purses were associated with betrothal and marriage, instead of being used for carrying money.
  • Purses called "Chaneries" were used for holding falcons' food and gaming.
  • Ecclesiastical purses were significantly used for holding corporals or relics.
  • The Seal Bag was the most important, which was made for the Keeper of the Great Seal, known as the Lord Chancellor, later.16th Century- The Elizabethan era came up with small purses being lost in huge amounts of fabric. Women started wearing pockets under their skirts, while men began wearing leather-made pockets (called "bagges") inside their breeches.
  • 17th Century people became fashionable. They rejected the use of bags and preferred long hanging decorative drawstring purses under their breeches and skirts.
  • 18th Century- Complex materials and shapes of purses came into view. Women started wearing narrow and slender dresses where there was no space left for pockets which were consequently discarded. Purses became sophisticated and called as "reticules" or "indispensables", by the English.
  • 19th Century- Rise of the term "Handbag". Handbags referred to hand-held luggage bags with internal compartments, complicated fasteners and locks. Consequently, jewelers started making special compartments for cosmetics, opera glasses and fans.
  • Purses with lighter clothing and varying hemlines became popular in the 1920's.
  • A new austerity in handbag style and clothing came up in the 1940's. They were made of plastic and wood due to shortage of zips, mirrors, leather and metal frames used in the war.
  • The rise of popular designer houses such as Louis Vuitton, Chanel, Hermes, was seen in the 1950's and Western purses were soon to follow, first made in Nebraska, USA.
  • The 1960's - 1970's saw the rise of youth sophistication and the disruption of old ideas of the classical.
  • The 1980's - 1990's witnessed conspicuous consumption and an extra concern towards shoes, work bags for carrying calculators and Filofax and fitness and health sports bags including fashionable accessories.
  • 21St Century- Presently handbags are created in an enigmatic array of materials and styles such as space age synthetics, waterproof canvas and faux reptile skins. Designers such as Kate Spade, Vera Wang, Michael Kors and Gucci manufacture handbags with transparent materials which both conceal and expose the contents of the handbag. Western Montana makes unique designs that are popular among women who love Western purses.
