Sporran is the Scottish Gaelic word for purse or pouch, and that’s how a modern-day sporran is used – to carry your money, mobile, cards and keys. (There’s not enough room for much else.)
Your choice of which sporran to wear will mainly be determined by your decision on how formal or informal your outfit is. So ‘Full Dress’ is the most formal, ‘Semi Dress’ is next and ‘Leather’ is the most informal.
The Piper Sporran is traditionally worn by members of a military pipe band but can also be worn as an extremely formal sporran.
We offer a huge range of sporrans for every outfit and every occasion. If you want to know more, read our article Choosing A Sporran for guidance.
