Cole Haan Handbags
Cole Haan handbags are some of the finest leather and suede designer purses you will find. Although the design headquarters for Cole Haan is in New York, the official headquarters is in Yarmouth, Maine. But handbags are not the only product that are coming out of New York and Maine from Cole Haan. In fact, when the company was started in Chicago in 1928 by Trafton Cole and Eddie Haan, the business just focused on making high quality shoes for men. The craftsmanship and superiority of the footwear led to other developments for the company and eventually caught the attention of other shoe product companies. So in 1974, the brand was acquired by a high label company, and in 1988 there was a huge development with Nike. Having partnered with Nike, Cole Haan was able to introduce the advanced technology of Nike athletic shoes into the dress and casual shoes the company was making. This has given them a huge boost of credibility and comfort in the shoes as well.
It was actually not until 1990 that the company started it's own line of accessories, belts, wallets, gloves, scarves, handbags, and other clothing items for both men and women. Since then the brand has become a high-end fashion designing company and has produced some of the most beloved handbags in the fashion market. Each Cole Haan handbag is carefully crafted with the utmost of quality and most elegant of style in mind. To the relief of some animal lovers, in 2008, the company officially stopped making purses and accessories out of animal fur.
Some of the most popular Cole Haan purses include different collections like the Amalfi, the Marabelle Print, Bailey, Saddle, Village, Felicity,Ruby, and Genevieve. Whether it's a roomy shoulder bag, a cute and tidy clutch, or the always elegant hobo, Cole Haan has the handbags that women want, and one glance at their collection will show you why.
The Marabelle Print has been a particular success made with pacific print leather and custom brushed nickel hardware that will look good all the time and for years to come. The Felicity small zip shoulder bag also makes a great all around purse and comes in Vintage leather with suede accents which looks great in black. The Maria small triple zip satchel has a bold new design too, and is made of lightweight but durable nylon and has a great modern flare of pleating with a classic touch.
