Bucket List: The Dakar Rally

If you think a flat out, off-road race from France to Senegal might be the type of thing that an adventurous playboy with a good amount of inherited money might concoct, then you’d be exactly right. It all began when a 28-year-old Frenchman Thierry Sabine got lost on his motorbike in the Libyan desert in 1977 and decided that this was just the sort of adventure some of his well-heeled chums back in France might enjoy. So the next year, a number of his friends and associates from the racing world gathered at the base of the Eiffel Tower and began the first running of what would officially become known as the Paris Dakar Rally... and what would unofficially become known as “The Most Dangerous Race in The World”.

If you think a flat out, off-road race from France to Senegal might be the type of thing that an adventurous playboy with a good amount of inherited money might concoct, then you’d be exactly right. It all began when a 28-year-old Frenchman Thierry Sabine got lost on his motorbike in the Libyan desert in 1977 and decided that this was just the sort of adventure some of his well-heeled chums back in France might enjoy. So the next year, a number of his friends and associates from the racing world gathered at the base of the Eiffel Tower and began the first running of what would officially become known as the Paris Dakar Rally... and what would unofficially become known as “The Most Dangerous Race in The World”. The race, which covered over 6000 miles of some of the world’s most treacherous terrain, would be open to both amateur and professional participants in any form of wheeled transport, be it car, truck, or motorcycle. As the race's notoriety grew, a number of automobile and motorcycle companies assembled their own factory team for the rally - most famously Porsche with its 959 supercar. While changes in the both the physical and political landscape caused the route of the race to be modified several times, the rally continued to be run through Africa until 2008, when terrorist threats directed at participants crossing through Mauritania abruptly canceled the race. Since 2009 the route has been moved to South America, though keeping the Dakar name in tribute. The title of “World's Most Dangerous Race” is not without merit, as almost every year participants have been lost or killed from causes ranging from accidents to run-ins with African wildlife and warring tribesmen. The official death toll relating to the Dakar Rally stands at over 60, including Thierry Sabine himself, who perished along with four other passengers in a helicopter crash during the 1986 race. For those who remain undaunted, entry applications for the race can be submitted via www.dakar.com For our Ghurka fans who would prefer the role of spectator, stake out a spot on the sidelines with our Newport Umbrella.

Ghurka Features

  • Our Leather

    Ghurka leather is never pretreated to remove any flaws, we must begin by using the most naturally flawless hides available. While we utilize a variety of leather types based on which is best suited to a particular product, the majority of our goods are made from French calfskin. Calfskin has a finer grain and softer feel than traditional cowhide as the younger age of the animal brings less exposure to the harsh elements, the main cause of imperfection. French calfskin in particular is considered the finest in the world due to the fact that farms in France do not use barbed wire, one of the leading causes of mars and scratches. As no two skins are completely alike, each and every handcrafted leather Ghurka product will have an individual character that adds to its unique patina as it ages.

  • The Stitching

    We use an extra-thick spun nylon that should never snap or fray, and all of our craftsmen ensure that each and every piece is stitched to our exacting standards. A careful review of any two parts of a Ghurka leather luggage piece will reveal exactly the same number of stitches per inch, a requirement for anything that leaves our workshop. The placement of these stitches is equally exact, precisely laid out to the millimeter to ensure that every bit of leather is assembled to last a lifetime.

  • The Brass

    Brass is the only metal we've found that offers the strength, durability, and reliability that have become our hallmark. Every single piece of our hardware - from zippers, buckles, and hooks to the smallest of snaps and rivets are made solely from this rugged and beautiful material. A great deal of time and expense has been invested in perfecting our brass zippers. Every single tooth is individually machined and polished to ensure flawless operation after years of continuous use. And since all of our leather briefcase and leather travel bag hardware is solid brass and never plated, it too will develop a unique character and patina as it ages alongside our famous leather.

  • The Process

    Since our founding, Ghurka has set out to manufacture the highest handcrafted leather goods available in the U.S. 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 Ghurka medallion. Likewise, our signature solid brass hardware and trademark stitching process ensure that our bags deliver an unparalleled owner experience and lifetime of use.
