Rooted in history and American craftsmanship since 1975, Ghurka Company has produced fashionable leather bags, briefcases, and luggage. “Currently made in the US are primarily all of our Men’s business bags and many of the travel pieces. All of our registered Original Collection pieces are currently made in the US; some Men’s bags are also produced in Italy and Spain.”
The Ghurka trade name was inspired by the rugged elegance and workmanship of craftsmen who fabricated campaign gear for the brave and fierce Nepalese fighters of the Himalayas.
Their manufacturing facility is located in Norwalk, CT, the headquarters is in New York City. They employ over 40 skilled artisans, designers, production staff, and marketing and sales specialists who are passionate about American craftsmanship and fashion; they are committed to the revitalization of leather manufacturing in the U.S..
“A Ghurka bag is as international as it is American, as cosmopolitan as it is local, as rooted in history as it is constantly changing. Every new scratch is indicative of a past adventure and anticipates the next journey.”
Note: Ghurka does have foreign sourced products listed on their website, those products are noted by country of origin on their description page.
