This is a copy of the famous Rob Roy style sporran used in the early 18th through 19th century by Scottish Highlanders. Made out of a combination of my latigo and soft chrome tanned leathers. Draw string top closer with tassels on ends of rawhide lace. A celtic design is embossed into the flap. This sporran can be worn traditionally on a sporran belt or can be worn on a regular waist belt up to 3" wide. Most sporrans are made to be worn on a special Sporran waist belt with chains that attach to small Dee rings on the back of the Sporan so it hangs below the buckle. I have included the extra belt loop on the back in addition to the dee rings. Diamentions are 8" wide by 9" tall. There is no gusset so the bag is flat. See our matching waist belts.

I bought a used brown version of the sporran on eBay and it quickly became my go-to sporran. I love the quality of the leather, substantial yet soft. I particularly like the way all the tassels are functional. The two on the sides gather the leather in and the one in the center fastens the flap down. I've always found tassels that are simply decorative annoying. A handy loop on the bag allows me to fasten the sporran directly to a belt.
I liked the used one I bought so much that I inquired about getting a black one which is not listed on the website. It turns out that one can order a black sporran. I'm wearing it as I write this review.
Here's a link to a picture of me wearing the sporran. https://www.facebook.com/photo.php?fbid=10205630537024118&set=a.1263237502432.2040439.1274553593&type=1&theater¬if_t=like
A great value.
