A forsaken Highlanders Sporran...
This is based on a sporran in Kendal museum, which was apparently left on the battlefield by a highlander during the 1745 retreat.
It appears a little less ostentatious than previous sporrans I've researched, perhaps a little more common in style? but it is indeed still intricately made with dedication to the edging and braiding.
These are made with Scottish deerskin which is traditionally bark tanned. This allows us to get the right properties in the hide, and keep to as authentic material as possible.
I have tried to keep as close to how I interpret the original as much as possible. The leather is soft and beautiful, the detail is fine, and its use is very practical. It is a great example of true Scottish craft, and I hope I have done the original justice.
