Leather lovers have something new to long for: the Burma Ostrich Backpack by Ghurka. Crafted from military green ostrich leather into a roomy silhouette, then outfitted with polished goldtone hardware and shoulder straps that double as a drawstring closure, this bag begs to be part of your daily routine.

The rolled shoulder straps rest easy against your frame — they won’t press heavily and cause discomfort like ordinary straps. An O-ring detail at the lower front adds charming accent, while a stamped logo identifies the maker without dominating your look.

An interior slip pocket helps you stay organized, while a discreet zip pocket at the exterior provides extra space for small items that could get lost in the shuffle.

You may be tempted to make the Burma Ostrich Backpack an off-duty staple, but don’t limit this Italian-crafted bag’s potential. It looks great with everything from boyfriend jeans and a basic v-neck tee on the weekends, to wide leg pants and a blouse for the office. Ostrich is known for its unique texture – an immediate status symbol of good taste and quality.

GHURKA Burma Ostrich Backpack

Ghurka was founded by Marley Hodgson when he came upon gear once belonging to a British Gurkha commander at the turn of the century. Inspired by the designs, he later created a leather knapsack, which became the first Ghurka bag. Far from being a military bag, this Ostrich Backpack takes the contemporary drawstring silhouette to a decidedly sophisticated and upscale level.
