ABOUT US Since 1975, Ghurka bags and leather goods have embodied the American spirit of strength, confidence, independence and boundless exploration. Our utilitarian, military inspired designs are met with artisanal craftsmanship for a time-honored quality that evokes modern nostalgia for an effortless sophistication. OUR HERITAGE In the early 1970’s founder Marley Hodgson found himself at an estate sale in the UK, where he encountered a rare collection of campaign gear once belonging to a British Gurkha commander stationed in India at the turn of the century. There were boots, belts, backpacks, all almost 100 years old, yet the leather remained supple sturdy and full of character. Captivated by the collection he returned to US and made his first Ghurka bag, a leather knapsack. In 1975, with the world’s finest leathers, the upmost attention to detail and respect for the craft, Marley designed his first Ghurka collection at a factory in Norwalk, Connecticut. For over 40 years, proud generations of artisans have upheld the craftsmanship, quality and purpose of Ghurka in that very same factory still hand making the Original Collection today. OUR COMMITMENT The Ghurka collection is handmade by artisans who have spent their lives learning the art of crafting beautiful and practical gear from fine leathers. Many of these artisans have been crafting Ghurka bags throughout our long history and reside in Norwalk, CT, northern Italy, the foothills of southern Spain, and beyond. Our commitment is that each item bearing the Ghurka name has been made with the utmost attention to detail and respect for our craft.
