Ever since ancient Egypt, money has been stored in a leather pouch, which at the same time served as a purse or even a bag, depending on its size. In medieval Europe, leather bags were used by both men and women and hung on their belts. Leather pouches were made of a round piece of leather, strung with a string, during the Renaissance they were already more sophisticated, more luxurious with several pockets and secret compartments, ornaments and beads. Historically leather products were made by a leather master.
