History of Coach Handbags
The archives are observed regarding the cellar floor of Coach United States H.Q. (Fun fact: the current headquarters are on 34th road, in identical place as the residence's initial factory lofts.) But dusty, it is not: the archives tend to be meticulously preserved; to check out anything inside bright, airy room you have got to pop in one or more of the Michael Jackson gloves, to prevent the essential oils and soil from your own hands mussing up the old leathers. (See what I mean? No touching!)
In the heart of the space, there are huge level data full of small leathergood pieces...

Clothier Bonnie Cashin came onboard in 1962, staying at the house until 1974, where she developed a number of Coach's key signatures. The simple turn-key fobs, piped seams and pop-y colors? All classic Cashin.
