The tote bag has come from very humble beginnings to be an important accessory in the portfolio of most designer brands. The etymology of the word tote is “to carry” and can be traced back to the 17th century. However, the tote bag has been an essential part of fashion history ever since people had something precious they needed to carry. The first tote bags were pouches worn around the waist. Although they had a practical use they could be embellished with embroidery or jewels and were used as a sign of a person’s status and wealth.

About Chanel Bags*

The House of Chanel (Chanel S.A.) originated in 1909, when Gabrielle Chanel opened a millinery shop at 160 Boulevard Malesherbes, the ground floor of the Parisian flat of the socialite and textile businessman Étienne Balsan, of whom she was mistress.

The House of Chanel also presented leather handbags with either gold-colour chains or metal-and-leather chains, which allowed carrying the handbag from the shoulder or in hand. The quilted-leather handbag was presented to the public in February 1955. In-house, the numeric version of the launching date “2.55” for that line of handbags became the internal “appellation” for that model of quilted-leather handbag.

Beginning in the 1990s, all authentic Chanel handbags were numbered.
