We use many different bags in our daily lives, and we want them to be of high quality. When the words 'bag' and 'quality' come together, they primarily point to two points, raw material and production technique. At the intersection of these two points are handmade leather bags. Whether a handbag, a backpack, or a travel bag, there is no more elegant and luxurious bag than a handmade genuine leather bag.

Quality leather procurement, selection and cutting of the right leather for each piece, and then carefully processing these pieces to create a bag requires technical knowledge and experience. Some of the world's leading fashion brands have acquired their recognition thanks to the luxury leather products they produce. Ghurka, proud of its artisans and quality craftsmanship for more than 40 years, is a company specializing in luxury leather products and following each product with its special serial number.

During his UK trip, Marley Hodgson saw a collection of British Gurkha commander's belongings, such as leather bags, boots, and belts, which inspired him to create a collection of handmade luxury leather goods. In 1975, he produced his first collection at the factory in Norwalk, Connecticut, choosing the finest leathers and paying extreme attention to quality craftsmanship, and the Ghurka brand was born.

Ghurka creates collections under the categories of travel, business, everyday, handbag, and accessories. In addition to genuine leather, Ghurka uses canvas and metal accessories in production. However, the basic raw material of the Ghurka products is always leather.

Producing leather duffel bags, purses, handbags, file bags, keychains, and even travel watch boxes, Ghurka offers a wide range of products that show how much different kinds of leather goods can be used in our daily life.

We have looked at the products in Ghurka's collections of luxury leather products and we have selected and listed some of the leather bags that we think can add a different style and elegance to the lives of their users.
