Governess Governess Governess Governess Governess Governess Governess Governess

The governess handbag is named after the Governess cart. A small two-wheeled pony-drawn cart. The purpose of the cart was to be light enough to be drawn by a well-tempered pony or cob, who would be gentle enough, according to the mores of the time, to be handled by a lady. This gave rise to the cart's name, as they were frequently used by governesses to transport their child charges. The governess rode in the cart with the passengers, where they could easily be observed.
