Marley Hodgson founded Ghurka in 1975 to combine his passions for history and leather craft. His motivation came when he won a bid on campaign gear made for a Ghurka regimental officer who was stationed in India during the early 1900s. Ghurka soldiers, who since the days of the British Raj have been known throughout the world for their bravery and loyalty, inspired the name of the company that Hodgson created after being so intrigued by the elegance and workmanship of the 75-year-old leather pieces he acquired. Today, the company’s bags are handmade by master artisans who are committed to the tradition of superior craftsmanship, superb functionality and timeless American style.
