My love affair with Ghurka began 30 years ago when my best friend took me to their store in Santa Barbara. I purchased the Cinch purse & loved it so much that I returned to buy it in burgundy and black. Since then I've bought many different styles but my favorite is my well worn and travelled No 222 Surveyor. I am a rose rustler and look for roses no longer in commerce and in danger of extinction to propagate and preserve to be enjoyed today and for future generations. The Surveyor, with its many roomy pockets and space, organizes and holds all the tools I need!
