A Rich Heritage:
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 materials and workmanship. Coach’s exceptional work force remains committed to carefully upholding the principles of quality and integrity that define the company. We attribute the prominence of the Coach brand to the unique combination of our original American attitude and design, our heritage of fine leather goods and custom fabrics, our superior product quality and durability and our commitment to customer service.
Defining Modern Luxury:
Coach is a leading New York design house of modern luxury accessories and lifestyle collections. Our product offerings include women's and men's bags, women’s and men’s small leather goods, business cases, footwear, wearables including outerwear, watches, weekend and travel accessories, scarves, sunwear, fragrance, jewelry, travel bags and other lifestyle products. Continued development of new categories has further established the signature style and distinctive identity of the Coach brand. Together with our licensing partners, we also offer watches, footwear, eyewear and fragrance bearing the Coach brand name in select department stores and specialty retailer locations.
Broad Reach:

Coach’s distribution strategy is multi-channel. As of July 2016, there were over 430 Coach stores in North American and 520 international locations including approximately 40 in Europe and 480 in Asia. Coach also operates e-commerce websites in the United States, Canada, Japan, Mainland China, the United Kingdom and South Korea with informational websites in many other countries. Beyond the company’s direct retail businesses, Coach has built a strong presence globally through Coach boutiques located within select department stores and specialty retailer locations in North America and Europe, as well as through distributor-operated shops in Asia, Latin America, the Middle East, and Australia. 

Crafting The Future:

Coach is a global leader in premium bags and accessories. Building upon our strong brand and business equities, we are transforming into a global modern luxury brand, presenting a clear and compelling expression of the Coach woman and man across all product categories, store environments and brand imagery. In addition, we are leveraging the global opportunity for Coach by raising brand awareness and building market share in markets where Coach is under-penetrated.

In May 2015, Coach acquired Stuart Weitzman, a leading designer and manufacturer of women's luxury footwear. Similar to Coach, it is a brand built on offering innovation, relevance, and value to a loyal customer base, and is known for its craftsmanship and quality – merging fashion and function.
