We have a history here. Our founder Marley Hodgson operated a beautiful and successful Post Street boutique in the 80’s and 90’s, and we are thrilled to be back. , The opening was celebrated with a private launch event benefitting the San Francisco Zoological society., , We couldn’t think of a better partner for our arrival than the San Francisco Zoo. , Ghurka is, above all things, about travel, adventure, and experiencing the world, and the Zoo brings this experience of exploration and learning to so many individuals and families in the Bay Area each year. The inside scoop: The shop includes original Art Nouveau bakery casework that dates back to the turn-of-the-century, which we stumbled upon for sale in the garage of an internationally celebrated chef. , (The pieces were obtained for a new bakery concept that never materialized, and it was perfect for what we had in mind.) , Interestingly, our namesakes the Ghurka regiments of the British Army rose to prominence in the early 1900’s so the pieces were an ideal fit. , A hand-painted, large scale strategic military map mural adorns the rear wall to complete the theme. , Calling all weekend warriors...

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.
