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. Coach is a leading New York design house of modern luxury accessories and lifestyle collections.Continued development of new categories has further established the signature style and distinctive identity of the Coach brand. Together with their licensing partners, they offer watches, footwear, eyewear and fragrance bearing the Coach brand name in select department stores and specialty retailer locations.
