Briefcases are considered today as fundamental accessories of every businessmen and women. They are not only handy in keeping documents, whether in digital or paper form, organized; they also provide security in transporting said files. 14th Century Europe marks the invention of the concept of the briefcase. At the time, soft satchels called “budgets”-which was derived from its Latin translation “bulga” that means “leather bag”-were used to transport money and other valuable from one location to another. These soft satchels were later replaced by carpetbags and these carpetbags were later incorporated with iron frames with hinges that eventually evolved to the metal frame leather briefcases as we know briefcases today.
A briefcase is just another type of bag. It can be easily recognized as it is rectangular in shape and comes in different colors, sizes, textures, styles and brands. Also, do not let yourself be confused with the different terminologies such as attache cases, portfolios, presentation cases and messenger bags as these are just some of the different types of briefcases. Different brands are also popular in the briefcase business such as Samsonite briefcases and Hofbauer briefcases. Briefcases come in assorted styles, which vary from personal to professional use.
Briefcases come in four general types-each of which are designed with special features and are made for specific functions. Portfolios are the first type of briefcases. Usually held under the arm as they don’t feature a handle, portfolios are especially made for individuals who frequently transport documents from place to place such as students.
