A number of European manufacturers have long histories of producing leather goods. Some were made by famous jewellery companies such such as Tiffany & Co.. For some companies, such as Gucci and Louis Vuitton, handbags were introduced to their product range relatively recently in their history but for others like H.J. Cave & Sons, they have been around almost as long as the company. Nonetheless, handbags are among their best-known products, and their logos are recognized in many countries today. Leather handbags have grown in popularity over the years because leather is very durable, and as gifts, because people don't have to worry about some clothing article fitting (or not fitting) the other person.
One of the most expensive of the luxury handbags are made by Hermès. Prices start at $6000; handbags are made to order, and the waiting lists are years long. Hermès handbag designs carry the names of actresses, socialites, and other celebrities who were frequently photographed with a particular handbag, most notably the Birkin bag named after Jane Birkin, and the Kelly bag named after Grace Kelly.
Other designers have adopted the practice of naming their handbag designs after celebrities, for example Marc Jacobs, who created the "Stam" purse, named after model Jessica Stam.
Created from 4,517 diamonds and 18-karat gold embellishments, Mouawad's 1001 Nights Diamond Purse costs $3.8 million and has been featured in the Guinness Book of World Records as the world's most expensive purse.
