The first Coach handbag was introduced over fifty years ago. Inspired by the nuanced, burnished look of a worn leather baseball glove, Coach’s founder sought to recreate its beauty. After much experimentation, the six artisans who comprised Coach’s entire staff set to work on handcrafting and stitching their distinctive brand of leather bags.
The Success of Coach Handbags
Things have come along way since those six artisans worked together in a Manhattan loft more than half a century ago. Coach handbags quickly became very popular, for their quality leather, durable stitching and classic design. Coach handbags are now rivaled only by Italian leather goods for beauty and craftsmanship.
As far as American products go, however, Coach is the cream of the crop. They now offer lines for men,
women, and even pets! To their chagrin, cheap knock offs of Coach bags are probably even more popular than the real thing. Coach bags are very popular gifts, as well. Many husbands have breathed a sigh of relief after discovering they can give their wives Coach bags every birthday, and she’ll always be pleased.
If you are in the market for Coach products, first shop the Internet for comparable bags. You may be able to find bags that are even better designed and better made, particularly if you look to imported bags. Italy is still the undisputed king of leather goods,
and its luggage and handbags are still the best in the world.
