Wallets, billfolds, purses and travelwallets were developed almost immediately after the introduction of paper currency to the West in the 1600s. Prior to the introduction of paper currency, purses (resembling simple drawstring leather pouches) were used for storing coins.






Early it was made primarily of cow or horse leather and included a small pouch for printed calling cards.  The modern billfold with multiple "card slots" achieved its uniform standard size in the early 1950s with the introduction of the first credit cards in 1951.

 The design remained mostly unchanged throughout most of the late 20th century with the exception of the velcro which was introduced in the 1970s.

Today designs has exploded into myriad shapes, designs, and colours from dozens of designers.





In American English, a purse is a small bag, also called a handbag.

In British English, a purse is a small money container similar to a wallet, but typically used by women and including a compartment for coins, with a handbag being considerably larger.
