A briefcase is a narrow box-shaped bag or case used mainly for carrying papers and other documents and equipped with a handle. Lawyers commonly use briefcases to carry briefs to present to a court, hence the name. Businesspeople and other professionals also use briefcases to carry important papers and, today, laptop computers.
Briefcases are descendants of the limp satchel used in the fourteenth century for carrying money and valuables. It was called a "budget", derived from the Latin word "bulga" or Irish word "bolg", both meaning leather bag, and also the source of the financial term "budget".
Godillot of Paris was the first to use a hinged iron frame on a carpetbag, in 1826. There then followed the Gladstone bag and the Rosebery, an oval-top bag. Eventually these became the modern metal-framed briefcase.
1. A portfolio is a handleless case for carrying in the hand or under the arm. The name refers to the dry dock port officials of the 1950's in Boston Harbour, who would carry this style of case to contain all of the important dry dock information needed at the time. With all the information at hand, they were able to quickly access information on any ship in the dry dock. This trend quickly expanded to other drydocks across the east coast.
2. A folio case is a portfolio with a retractable handle.
3. An attach¨¦ case is a box-style case made of leather (occasionally aluminium), stretched over a hinged frame that opens into two compartments. It was traditionally carried by an attach¨¦, a diplomatic officer attached to an embassy or consulate officially assigned to serve in a particular capacity (e.g., cultural attach¨¦; military attach¨¦).
