The Loire Valley: Historic adventure in the playground of kings

Extravagant castles. Enchanted forests. Spell casting wine. Life rivals any fairy tale in the stretch of French countryside known as the “Playground of Kings.” The Loire Valley region is a cobblestone’s throw from Paris, just two hours south. Yet a visit to the Valley of a Thousand Châteaux is like taking a jaunt back through France’s Renaissance history. Sans the bloody wars. In Medieval wartime, the Loire River was a strategic stronghold. Monarchs built king-size fortresses along the valley and nobles followed to be close to  their protectors. During the Renaissance, defensive bastions gave way to pleasure palaces, hunting lodges and labyrinth gardens as the region became a  hot spot for Parisian aristocrats. Today, the cast...

Extravagant castles. Enchanted forests. Spell casting wine. Life rivals any fairy tale in the stretch of French countryside known as the “Playground of Kings.” The Loire Valley region is a cobblestone’s throw from Paris, just two hours south. Yet a visit to the Valley of a Thousand Châteaux is like taking a jaunt back through France’s Renaissance history. Sans the bloody wars. In Medieval wartime, the Loire River was a strategic stronghold. Monarchs built king-size fortresses along the valley and nobles followed to be close to  their protectors. During the Renaissance, defensive bastions gave way to pleasure palaces, hunting lodges and labyrinth gardens as the region became a  hot spot for Parisian aristocrats. Today, the castled landscapes of the Loire Valley are rich with architecture, folklore, and because this is France, some of  the best wine to ever kiss a frog or fair maiden’s lips. For those not faint of heart, the Loire also offers once-upon-a-time adventure. There are hundreds of châteaux to explore and more than a few fun ways to reach them. A hot air balloon trip is among the most memorable. Board near  the Château de Chenonceau and soar over the crown jewel of la Loire with the wind as your guide. This 15th century palace is the stuff of storybooks,  replete with tower, arched bridge and moat. The rich interior evokes tales of chivalrous knights, vengeful queens and royal scandal. Though here, these  legends ring true. Or take off in Amboise for a birds-eye view of the gothic town and its cobblestone streets lined with local cafés and shops. Drift past the Royal Chateau and Clos Lucé, the manor where Leonardo da Vinci lived out his last years sharing ideas with King Francis via an underground passageway that facilitated their near daily chats. After, tour Clos Lucé on foot to discover working models of Da Vinci’s designs, a flying machine and a helicopter among them. Reflect on your own balloon flight, echoed in the master’s words: “Once you have tasted the sky, you will forever look up.” There are also thrills to be found beneath the earth. Troglodyte caves abound throughout the region, and there are entire towns that peasants carved from cliff faces and tunneled underground. Sometimes the billow of smoke from a buried chimney is the only clue to these hidden homes. Explore the Troglodyte village of Rochemenier for a window into a way of life that dates back to the 13th century and was still in existence until the 1930’s. Armed with building plans, you can wind your way through the villages’ twenty rooms, two underground farms and a subterranean chapel carved completely from rock. Though these cave dwellings are far simpler and much smaller than the palaces above land, the world of the troglodyte is one that equally fascinates. More excitement awaits in the Loire’s woods and rivers. Take a horse ride past the home of French novelist Honoré Balzac or paddle the moat-like waters that flank the turreted façade of Azay-le-Rideau. Rappel and swing through a treetop adventure park in the forest of Chinon while channeling the courage of local legend Joan of Arc. At the end of each adventure, rest in rooms once slept in by queens. Whatever your fancy in this most fanciful of lands, the Loire Valley promises an experience you will remember happily ever after.

Hand Crafted: The ICON 4x4 FJ40

Here at Ghurka, we’re big fans of cars, particularly the classics. And we love a good adventure, the type that takes one off the beaten path. So great old cars that are purpose built to go on such adventures take a special spot in our hearts. We also take great pride in being craftsmen, in eschewing mass production and instead painstakingly creating by hand the finest product we possibly can, regardless of the additional time and expense, and have a great admiration for other companies that do the same. Rarely do we find things that combine all three of these passions, and even rarer that they do it as well as the ICON 4x4 FJ40. ICON 4x4 is the brainchild of Jonathan Walsh, a Californian with a particular affinity for vintage Toyota La...

Here at Ghurka, we’re big fans of cars, particularly the classics. And we love a good adventure, the type that takes one off the beaten path. So great old cars that are purpose built to go on such adventures take a special spot in our hearts. We also take great pride in being craftsmen, in eschewing mass production and instead painstakingly creating by hand the finest product we possibly can, regardless of the additional time and expense, and have a great admiration for other companies that do the same. Rarely do we find things that combine all three of these passions, and even rarer that they do it as well as the ICON 4x4 FJ40. ICON 4x4 is the brainchild of Jonathan Walsh, a Californian with a particular affinity for vintage Toyota Land Cruisers. He owned TLC, a Land Cruiser specific restoration shop that became so well known it caught the eye of Toyota themselves, who hired Walsh as a consultant. Walsh had long sought the “ultimate” Land Cruiser, and unable to find one that met his exacting specifications, he decided to create his own. Entirely from scratch. That’s a bold undertaking regardless of the vehicle, but if any car were to be rebuilt upon and improved to perfection, there are few that would be more fitting of the treatment than the Land Cruiser, as that sort of passion is in its very DNA. To understand the Land Cruiser, one has to go back more than 60 years. America was entrenched in war with Korea, and it needed a faster and more economical way to get its Willys Jeeps to troops than building and shipping them from the States. So the army contracted Toyota, and gave them the blueprints to replicate 100 Willys Jeeps and deliver them directly to Korea. After building the cars engineers at Toyota felt convinced that they could design a similar go-anywhere vehicle that was even better than the Willys, and set out to do just that. , By 1951, their product, internally known as the BJ, would make it further up Mount Fujithan any other vehicle ever created. The BJ would be rechristened the Land Cruiser, and its most popular iteration, the FJ40 would be introduced in 1960. It was the FJ40 that Walsh particularly loved, and much like theToyota engineers half a century before with the Willys, he set out to build something that was even better. , But there was one main difference between Walsh’s ICON and the engineers in Japan is that while Toyota needed to make vehicles that were economically feasible from a business stand point, for Walsh, price was no object. The ICON just had to be perfect. To build the ICON, Walsh sourced technologies from a number of industries, bringing innovations from architecture and aeronautics into the automotive fold. The chassis and body panels are all laser cut from military strength aluminum, and the “paint” is actually a Teflon/polyester hybrid powdercoat that will never rust or fade and never requires waxing. The polarized sunshades were sourced from Lear Jets, the interior material is displayed in the Museum of Modern Art, and the windshield hardware comes from industrial grade freezers. You won’t find an inch of plastic on the ICON FJ, and any part Ward couldn’t find a suitable upgrade for he designed and machined himself. Every ICON is individually designed specifically for each customer, who can choose from over a hundred options in suspension, exhaust, electrics, and accessories, and whether they’d like a manual or automatic transmission mated to the “base” 350hp engine or be upgraded to the 420hp 5.7 liter V8. The whole design process takes several months, and everything is assembled by hand, start to finish, at ICON’s Los Angeles factory. The result is a fully bespoke vehicle that could very well be the greatest SUV in the world. There is nothing outwardly opulent about an ICON, it is a vehicle that has been stripped down to only what is absolutely necessary. But what does remain is designed and manufactured with an attention to detail that is unmatched in even the most expensive mass marketed automobiles. The ICON is also an extremely effective tool, a go anywhere vehicle that will outperform anything else is existence, and made to still be doing it a lifetime from now. This obsessive quest for perfection doesn’t come cheap- an ICON FJ40 starts around $130,000 and can easily double from there depending on the options. But what that buys you is much more than a car; it’s a rolling piece of art, a usable, tangible representation of an overwhelming passion. And it’s also pretty damn cool to boot. So what does one keep in the cargo space of an ICON FJ40? Nothing short of another rugged, handcrafted luxury item that’s built to last a life time would do, which is why we suggest our Kilburn II No. 156 in vintage chestnut leather.

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.
