Bespoke designed sporrans with a range of cantles and metal work and the goat hair body measures a perfectly respectable approx 16″ long. (This being the longest we can “stretch” the goat hair to!) To make the sporrans as functional as possible, they can have a very high quality leather back; and the large gusset sporran pocket, which is lined in chamois leather. We give the clients the choice.
A Sporran is a pouch (Scottish Gaelic for ‘purse’). Now a decorative part of Highland dress, it was originally an everyday practical item. Made of leather or fur, it usually has more or less elaborate silver or other ornamentation, especially on the clasp or hanger. It is worn on a chain or belt around the waist, allowing the sporran to lie below the waist of the person wearing a kilt.
