Leather Travel Essentials

There are certain items that I have found I take with me whenever I travel. , It doesn't really matter where I am going, or if it’s for work or leisure, they always go with me. One of these items is my Ghurka Express No. 2 bag (and if it looks like the possibility of rain, another is my Ghurka umbrella). The other item is my Tilley hat. I use the Express No. 2 as my essential carry-on when flying. I’ll throw my toiletries and electric shaver in it, as well as a change of clothes, just in case my suitcase doesn't show up at my destination at the same time I do.

There are certain items that I have found I take with me whenever I travel. , It doesn't really matter where I am going, or if it’s for work or leisure, they always go with me. One of these items is my Ghurka Express No. 2 bag (and if it looks like the possibility of rain, another is my Ghurka umbrella). The other item is my Tilley hat. I use the Express No. 2 as my essential carry-on when flying. I’ll throw my toiletries and electric shaver in it, as well as a change of clothes, just in case my suitcase doesn't show up at my destination at the same time I do. Add in my travel humidor for my cigars and cigar tools (I have this great small antique sterling silver cigar ashtray from Tiffany’s that I take which fits nicely into the zippered side pocket so I always have a cigar ashtray handy for the ashes), my iPad (or before that my CD player), headphones, a book or two, and maybe a sweatshirt or sweater for the plane ride and I’m all set. Thus fitted out I have logged many, many trips over the last 12 years across America, Europe and Asia. All with the same Express bag. I also use my Express No. 2, and take my umbrella whenever I go on a road trip. They fit nicely into my T-Bird, and accompany me (and my wife) as we explore New England. Top down, cruising through the countryside, definitely the way to see the northeast. I am writing to you about this because after more than 12 years of using my Express and Ghurka umbrella on more than a hundred trips, I find it interesting that people still stop me to comment on how great my bag looks. They ask who made it and from where it was purchased., When I tell them that it’s more than 10 years old with thousands of miles of use, they look at me in disbelief. I guess this shows that if you buy a quality, classic product and take care of it, it will last for many years, and continue to catch the eye of people who appreciate quality and great craftsmanship. With kind regards, Kenneth L.

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.
