The Coach brand stands for authenticity, innovation, and relevance. Started in 1941 as a family-run workshop in New York City, we were pioneers in the leather goods and accessories space, establishing ourselves as the original American house of leather during the second half of the 20th Century. Beginning in North America, Coach delivered an alternative to traditional luxury. We then expanded beyond our home market, becoming the first American company in our category to bring international relevance to an American leather goods brand. Today, Coach is available on five continents in over 1,000 directly-operated stores worldwide and many more in collaboration with our global wholesale and distributor partners. We continue to build on our brand strengths with a vision: "To become the company that defines global modern luxury."
