Coach has gone back to their roots by introducing a heritage collection of upcycled baseball wallets. In 1946 Coach was inspired by baseball gloves to make soft-wearing leather wallets and billfolds. This latest collection is a tribute to Miles Cahn, the man who pioneered this process for Coach. As a result of this success, the company also began to make women’s handbags, for which they are now renowned.
