May 23, 2018

Hilco Streambank (www.HilcoStreambank.com) announced that it is seeking offers to acquire the intellectual property assets associated with the Ghurka® brand including trademarks, the www.ghurka.com domain, customer data, social media assets, and equity interests in Ursa Minor B.V., a Dutch limited liability company which owns the Company’s trademarks.

Since 1975, the Ghurka brand has been synonymous with luxury hand-crafted leather travel bags and accessories. Developed in the United States and produced with partner factories in Connecticut, Spain and Italy, Ghurka branded products are heirloom pieces made to last for generations.  Ghurka products are distributed through the e-commerce website www.ghurka.com, a retail store in New York City and at leading luxury retailers.  In addition, the Ghurka brand has recently been extended into women’s handbags and accessories.  The direct-to consumer sales channel and women’s products represent growth opportunities for the brand.

Hilco Streambank senior vice president Richelle Kalnit commented, “The Ghurka brand builds on its rich history as an enduring, American luxury leather goods and accessories brand, incorporating the highest quality materials and classic style.”

The deadline for submitting offers to acquire the property is Monday, June 11, 2018 at 4:00 p.m. Eastern Time (US), and a sale of the property will be conducted pursuant to Article 9 of the Uniform Commercial Code on Wednesday, June 13, 2018 at 10:00 a.m. Eastern Time (US), by Hilco Streambank as agent for Gordon Brothers Brands, LLC, a secured lender.
