Product Description

A very fine military style leather case for holding sunglasses that has been made by one of the most exclusive US accessories’ maker: Marley Hodgson.

The case is made of very high quality tan leather from its World renowned ‘Ghurka’ rande. The inside is lined in chocolate coloured suede, and the flap closes with a small pop stud. The popper is made by Prym and is stamped GHURKA twice. On the back is the early company logo (from 1975 onwards) ‘ORIGINAL GHURKA COLLECTION – MARLEY HODGSON. There are 2 leather loops in order to fit the case on a waist belt.

Condition is very good, with that aged quality look that feels like it comes from the early 20th century.

In the early 1970's, founder Marley Hodgson found himself at an estate sale in the UK where he encountered a rare collection of camping gear including boots, belts and backpacks, that once belonged to a British Gurkha commander at the turn of the century. While nearly 100 years old, the leather remained supple, sturdy and full of character. Captivated by the collection, Marley returned to the US and made his first Ghurka bag – a leather knapsack. In 1975, with the world's finest leathers, the utmost attention to detail and respect for the craft, Marley designed his first Ghurka collection at a factory in Norwalk, Connecticut.
