I am writing this today to compliment your company on the quality of its merchandise. I have purchased several items from Ghurka over the past 20 years and have always been tremendously impressed with the quality, workmanship, style, and durability of your company’s products. A case in point is the enclosed wallet. I received this wallet for my 20th birthday in 1987. Several days ago for my 38th birthday my family decided to finally replace the old Ghurka wallet with a new Ghurka wallet. It may sound insane, but I do have an emotional tie to my old wallet and decided that the only way to properly dispose of it was to send it to its source. I feel this is a more distinguished form of disposal and the only way I will reluctantly release it from my possession. This wallet was with me through college and through the first half of my career. In its 18 years with me it has been lost and found several times. It has been dropped in oceans, lakes and rivers around the world. It has visited Europe, Southeast Asia, Africa, the Middle East, Russia, the Caribbean, South America, Canada, and Mexico, not to mention almost all of the 50 United States. It has seen me through many ups and downs over the past 18 years. Through all of the trials and tribulations of 18 years of life, my Ghurka has served me exceedingly well. Thank you for designing and manufacturing such a superior product. I am looking forward to another 18 years of life with my new Ghurka wallet.
