From Middle High German tasche, from Old High German taska, tasca. Further origin unknown. Perhaps from Proto-Germanic *taskǭ. Cognate with Dutch tas, Middle Low German tasche (“bag, pouch”), Old Norse taska (“bag, purse”) (probably borrowed from Low German). Compare English tasse (“plate armor, which protects the thighs”).
