According to the Coach Inc. website, Coach Inc., founded in 1941, has grown from producing a collection of leather goods to producing accessories, shoes and apparel in both leather and other fabrics. The Coach Inc. website's Company Profile states that the craftsmanship of Coach handbags has been maintained over the years as the company expanded from the original six artisans that crafted the leather products. A list of Coach's current handbag collections is maintained on its website, making it fairly easy for people to identify the name of each handbag.
