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.
Since our founding, Ghurka has set out to manufacture the highest quality handcrafted leather goods available. This has always begun with using only the finest hides in the world. While there are endless varieties of leather available, only a handful pass the rigorous selection process required to bear the exclusive Ghurka medallion. Likewise, our signature solid brass hardware and trademark stitching ensure that our bags deliver an unparalleled experience and lifetime of use. Pictured here is Luis Huerta who has been making Ghurka bags at his Norwalk, CT factory for nearly 40 years.
Since 1975, Ghurka bags and leather goods have embodied the
American spirit of strength, confidence, independence and boundless exploration.
