Sporrans

Sporran is the Gaelic for purse and has become a traditional part of Highland dress that is functional as well as being decorative. The functionality has survived from the European medieval pouch that was worn on a belt and period illustrations of individuals in trews (tight trousers) demonstrate admirably that it was in place of pockets.

The original sporrans were just circles of leather with holes around the circumference through which was threaded a leather thong which was tightened to draw the neck of the pouch together.

We carry a large selection of leather sporrans for every day use, can also be used when wearing our canvas kilts but not neccessary as our kilts come with side pockets.

Yes it is a myth that the Highlander used the sporrans to keep his Iphone in place just incase he had to text Hamish down below that the English were approaching!
