Llyr is the ancient Brythonic god of the sea. Mere is the Cumbrian word for Lake.
The cantle is made of hand cut shell, with gold leaf edging. The bass work is hammered by hand which creates a dimpled effect, it reminds me of the wind rushing over the river while I’m fishing. Silver passementerie fits beautifully with the rare Cumbrian cashmere goat. This hide was tanned in the Western Isles of Scotland famous for it majestic cliffs and silver sea.
The sporran is made from leather tanned using vegetable extract rather than chemicals. The colour is inspired by antique military examples which are red. The lining of the sporran are in green suede. The sporran has credit card slots and a pocket for small change.
Each sporran comes with a grosgrain and leather belt, finished with brass buckle and tip. This grosgrain is the same material traditionally used on lapels of dinner jackets.
All sporrans are made in the British Isles.
