Coach was founded in 1941 as a family-run workshop. In a Manhattan loft, six artisans handcrafted a collection of leather goods using skills handed down from generation to generation. Discerning consumers soon began to seek out the quality and unique nature of Coach craftsmanship. Now greatly expanded, Coach continues to maintain the highest standards for material and workmanship and has emerged as America's preeminent designer, producer and marketer of fine accessories and gifts for women and men. Coach line of products includes handbags, business cases, luggage and travel accessories, wallets, outerwear, eyewear, gloves, scarves, fragrance and fine jewelry. Today, the Coach brand represents a unique synthesis of magic and logic that stands for quality, authenticity, value and a truly inspirational, distinctive American style.
