When it comes to leather goods, the name Ghurka refers not to the legendary soldiers of the Himalayas but to an American leather goods manufacturer founded in the 1970s. The company was actually inspired by the soldiers; the company's founder was inspired to make leather bags after purchasing impressively durable and well designed gear used by Ghurka soldiers. All of the handbags and other gear made by this American company is designed with durability and simplicity in mind. If you like buying gear that will last the test of time, not only in terms of looks but in terms of quality, these bags may be just right for you. This is a brand that focuses on what works and not on what is trendy, and the result is a collection of bags that can be used for basically any occasion, be it work or play. From unisex briefcases to men's wallets and women's handbags, these fine leather goods are beautiful in their simplicity. There is a vast inventory of Ghurka products on eBay, including bags and purses in a variety of sizes.
