It was in the 1970s when Marley Hodgson, founder of Ghurka, stumbled upon a rare collection of campaign gear once belonging to a British Ghurka commander stationed in India at the turn of the century. Feeling inspired by what he had seen, he set about creating his own leather collection. In 1975 he did just that and using only the finest materials he made his first leather bag. Now 40 years later Hodgson’s legacy is still being forged by proud generations of artisans from many parts of Europe, who have kept true to Ghurka’s quality and ethos.
