Fifth Avenue Shopping: Ghurka


The Sherry-Netherland appreciates the work of fashion designers and talented artisans, admiring how a person’s craft can inspire the senses and create the most luxurious of experiences. For that reason, you’ll find only fine leathers, handmade clothing and exceptional styles at the midtown shops at The Sherry-Netherland, where Fifth Avenue shopping takes on a whole new meaning.

Ghurka bags, leather accessories and more

Indulge yourself in the finest of leathers at Ghurka, where each accessory — from handbags to luggage and everything in between — are handmade to create timeless style. The Ghurka story begins during a 1970s antiquities auction when founder Marley Hodgson bid on campaign gear made for a Ghurka soldier stationed in India in the early 20th-century. century. Inspired by the rugged elegance of this 75-year-old leather, Marley made his first Ghurka bag, a knapsack, for his young son, which is now used by Hodgson’s granddaughter.

Since that first bag, Hodgson and his team have set out to make each Ghurka bag as profoundly unique as the original creation. Every bag, whether it’s from Ghurka’s assortment of iconic designs or new classics, is given the Ghurka mark. Look for this iconic medallion, each showing a style number — No. 5, for instance — when that design came into market. Every bag also has its own registration number with the letters indicating the year of production, meaning every Ghurka accessory is one-of-a-kind.
