Pinoy, truly, goes global.
We, therefore, are not only known for our welcoming personality.
Instead, the Filipino people is now cementing its identity to international fashion standards.
One concrete example is a factory in Pampanga which employs nearly 11,000 Pinoy workers.
Well, this one ain’t an ordinary factory.
It manufactures and exports luxury bag line Coach.
The high-end line is known worldwide for its superior class and delicate craftsmanship.
It offers class and comfort all served in one bag.
Coach dates back to as early as 1941, when it is known as Manhattan Leather Bags by Lillian and Miles Cahn.
And now, almost eight decades after, the Philippines has etched its name in the luxury brand’s history books.
This feat is such an amazing thing to be truly proud of.
As a matter of fact, TV host Korina Sanchez documented inside the factory to show the processes and the finished product of the factory ready to go abroad.
Yes, it is truly an honor to manufacture the bag that will possibly be owned by a Hollywood star or a political figure.
Months after Korina’s post went viral, many other Pinoys commented and shared about the fact that many other Filipino companies manufature products for international luxury brands.
A netizen commented that she once worked in a Pinoy factory that also manufactures global products like Chanel.
She said, “Dati akong empleyado sa pabrika ng panty, six months contract… dyan sa Laguna Industrial Park. VS, CK, CHANNEL at Kung anu-ano pa, pang export quality [I used to work for a factory manufacturing undergarments for six months in Laguna Industrial Park. [They] produce Victoria’s Secret, Calvin Klein, Chanel and much more for export quality.”
On 2012, Chinese firm FCF Manufacturing set up a plant in Mariveles, Bataan.
According to reports, FCF is a subsidiary of Fashion Focus, which is a manufacturer and a major supplier of Coach Bags for almost 30 years.
As an addition, a Tarlac factory named D’Luxe Bags Philippines of the Luen Thai group is also a subcontractor of Coach bags.
Truly, these are the facts that makes us proud of being a Pinoy.
