What is a "purse"?

A purse, also known as a handbag, is a small bag used by women to carry personal belongings such as a wallet, makeup, mobile phone, keys, and other essentials. Purses are usually made from various materials such as leather, suede, nylon, canvas, and more. They come in various styles, designs, and colors to suit different occasions and outfits. Some purses have a single compartment, while others have multiple compartments with zippers or magnetic closures to keep items organized and secure.
