When Did Bum Bags Come into Existence? Classic or Trend?

The history of Bum Bags, also known as Fanny Packs, is both fascinating and extensive.

Ancient Origins: The idea of a bag worn on the body can be traced back to antiquity. The ancient Romans had a similar bag called "Birrus" or "Bursa", worn on the belt.

19th Century: In the late 1800s, Fanny Packs were used by the bourgeois society in Europe during travel. Often made of genuine leather, they served to securely store money and important documents.

1980s: The Bum Bag experienced a renaissance in the 1980s, becoming a fashionable accessory. It became popular with tourists as well as in the skating, fitness, and dance scenes.

21st Century: After a period of decline, the Bum Bag has made a comeback in recent years. It's popular in both high fashion and streetwear and is offered in various materials, including leather and canvas. New to the style is that you can wear the Bum Bag as a Cross-Bag, or crossbody.

Bum Bags for Men thus symbolize a connection between function, fashion, outfit, style, and values that have been reinterpreted throughout the centuries. Their history is testimony to the enduring fascination they exert as a practical and stylish accessory.
