If you’re African, then you’ve probably heard the saying ‘Never touch a woman’s purse’. It doesn’t have to be a designer, a woman is always going to need a purse to compliment her outfit or carry extra stuff that she needs to survive the day. A purse is one accessory that a woman simply isn’t complete without. A frequently asked question is why women always have to carry bags.For a mere accessory, the handbag serves a lot of purposes, be it fashionable or functional, a handbag is simply something that a woman feels naked without. A handbag is an outward statement of a woman’s status, speaking volumes without uttering a single word.

A handbag whether luxurious like a Louis Vuitton, Fendi or Gucci or, handcrafted with beads represents something deep about the owner. A handbag has been said to be one of the best judges of character. It is a big fashion statement on its own and sells at twice the rate of clothes.

A fetish, an investment, a survival kit, a handbag is so many things wrapped in one. For nursing mothers a handbag is like Superman's toolbox, an entire jungle with stuff ranging from tampons, make-up, mobile phones, credit cards, hair accessories, spare diapers, an extra bottle, and kiddy snacks, you never know what you are going to find in a woman’s bag.
