Coach is an American leather goods company created in 1941 in Manhattan, New York. Miles Cahn took over the Gail Manufacturing Company by 1950. The wallets and small leather goods produced by the company were profitable, but Cahn’s interest in new technology and materials helped the business expand into production of women’s handbags.
The first fragrance from Coach, eponymous women’s scent Coach, was launched in 2007. Coach fragrances today are offered in conjunction with Estee Lauder Companies.
