Ghurka Classic Craftsmanship

6 Dec 2012

Ghurka represents a modern brand, that brings back the ancient leather craftsmanship for people,

By making unusual choices at every turn, and by staying true to the fine art of hand crafting leather, Ghurka has become the most outstanding maker of fine leather goods in America. Thirty years from now, Marley Hodgson – the owner of the brand, inspired by the rough elegance and the workmanship of antique campaign gear once worn by Nepalese ghurkas, made a knapsack in the ghurka style for his son. Today, whether you’re planning a weekend trip or you have a business day out, Ghurka bags, made individually by hand, are truly the gold standard in American artisanal leather, bags that will last and last.

Assembled in Norwalk, Connecticut, Ghurka represents a modern brand, that brings back the ancient leather craftsmanship for people, who possess quiet confidence and a restless spirit and who are looking for the same thing in their bags. Ghurka materials are frankly extravagant and rare. With enduring American design and subtle, elegant hardware, each piece of Ghurka has a distinctive look and feel that will never date.

The bags meet most airlines standards as a carry-on and luggage tag included, and are also a very cosy and comfortable: multiple zippered pockets, loops to hold an umbrella and adjustable shoulder strap.

You can find Ghurka’s entire collection on their website, with pricing ranging from $195 for a signature leather wallet to $1,495 for one of Ghurka’s limited edition bags. Stay calm, and carry on, literally.
