True, you can get by with a duffel or a soulless black wheelie. But for a bag that will last and last (and only look better with age), get a Ghurka, the gold standard in American artisanal leather. This carryall is made by hand, and its sturdy construction and supple hand will be with you for years to come.
Ghurka founder Marley Hodgson started making fine leather bags after going to an auction and discovering antique campaign gear once worn by Nepalese ghurkas in the early 1900’s. Inspired by the rugged elegance and the workmanship of the 75-year old leather, Marley made a knapsack in the ghurka style for his son. Today, skilled artisans make Ghurka’s top quality leather bags and cases by hand in Norwalk, Connecticut. They cater to folks who possess what they call “quiet confidence and a restless spirit”, and who want the same thing in their bags.
