A wristlet is an item often worn by women that is a bag in the length and shape very similar to a purse. The wristlet has a zip which is seen at the top of the bag, including a loop at one end of the bag in order to place the wrist through it and to hold it in place. They are normally used to carry smaller items that would be found in a woman’s handbag and come in several colours, designs and fabrics. Wristlets tend to be used for carrying items at social events at night.
