The Coach name began in 1941 when six artists started a family workshop in a Manhattan loft. After people experienced the quality and craftsmanship that the artisans had to offer, customers were lining up by the dozen. Although the line was originally focused on leather pieces alone, Coach has since expanded their collection to include shoes, clothing, and men’s accessories as well. Recently Coach has gone through a revitalization adding on Selena Gomez as a brand ambassador and even acquiring Kate Spade New York as one of their brands. Talk about a major step up.
