Scottish Leather SporransThe sporran is an essential piece of Highland dress that accompanies a Scotsman's kilt. The name comes from the Scottish Gaelic word for 'purse'.

In early years kilts were a very basic garment that required no tailoring and were generally a single piece of tartan cloth wrapped around the body. The kilt had no pockets and out of necessity the Highlanders carried a small pouch, usually suspended from a belt. This pouch became the sporran as we know it today.

We have 9 different designs that range in price from $15.00 to $25.00. Most sporrans are leather or cowhide, and a belt is included.
All Sporrans are here!
