Glenn Pollack- CEO
Glenn has loved the Ghurka brand since discovering it in 1989. His very first Ghurka Ghurka bag was the Garrison Briefcase, in Chestnut- and his personal collection has since grown to nearly 50 pieces. Glenn is a world traveler, and pieces from his Ghurka collection have been to over 35 countries. "I've taken my Ghurkas everywhere," he said. "They're timeless, classic designs that get better with age."
As the CEO of Ghurka, Glenn has had a front-row seat to the brand's evolution. "We are proud of the products that Ghurka creates- and more importantly, we are proud of the domestic manufacturing we have sustained" he said. "Today, we have expanded our domestic manufacturing- and we can proudly say that 80% of the Ghurka portfolio is manufactured in the USA, and our leathers come from some of the best tanneries in the world."
Ghurka is sold worldwide, but Glenn's favorite part of the business is still hearing stories from customers about how Ghurka pieces have become part of their lives. "We recently had a customer write to us and say that his Ghurka duffle bag was the only piece of luggage he took on a life-changing trip around the world," Glenn said. "Stories like that are what make all the hard work worth it."

Vineyards in South Africa
When our tour guide in South Africa said he needed an everyday backpack, I knew the perfect one. The Explorer backpack is a heritage design from Ghurka and it is a timeless style--and exceptionally functional.
This picture is of our guide with his new Ghurka bag, and was taken in the beautiful South African Vineyard. Our guide looked so happy with his new bag, and I could tell he was really impressed with its quality.
I'm so glad our guide got to experience the quality and craftsmanship of Ghurka bags first-hand. I know he'll be using his Explorer backpack on all his future adventures!
