香包,古称香囊,亦称佩帏、容臭,以锦制作的也称“锦囊”或“锦香袋”。香包常用的是具有芳香开窍的中草药,如芳香化浊驱瘟的苍术、山奈、白芷、菖蒲、麝香、苏合香、冰片、牛黄、川芎、香附、辛夷等药,含有较强的挥发性物质。也有清香、驱虫、避瘟、防病的功能 最早的香包是在甘肃庆阳的双塔寺二号石造像塔体内发现的,距今至少有830多年了,其造型为荷叶盖,由黄褐色蚕织物缝制。香包选料考究,造型雅致,刺绣精细,色彩艳丽如新,被命名为“千岁香包”。
香包起源于何时,无从查考, 但我们从屈原的《离骚》中“扈江篱与辟芷兮,纫秋兰以为佩”,汉代《礼记》:“男女未冠笄者……衿缨皆陪容臭”,三国魏朝繁钦《定情》诗云:“何以致叩叩,香囊系肘后。”都说明香包在战国时已成饰物了,汉代时主要为未成年的男女都是佩戴。一般系于腰间或肘后之下的腰带上,也有的系于床帐或车辇上。而到了唐宋时期,香囊逐渐演变成女性的专用品。唐朝同昌公主的步辇缀五色香囊,每出游芬香满路。由于奇特香料多来自外国的贡品,朝廷还把香囊作为赏赐之物。从此佩带香囊之分,更在民间盛行。“榴花角黎斗时新,今日谁家酒不樽。堪笑江湖阻风客,却随蒿叶上珠门。”描述的当时人们欢度端午佳节的种种习俗。端午节前后,人们除了吃棕子、插艾叶以外,还要给孩子们带上香囊。至清代,香包已成为爱情的信物了。
