This design was inspired by an antique waistcoat reputed to have belonged to Rudolf Nureyev the soviet ballerino.
The cantle is made from hand embroidered silver thread onto velvet. Each shape on the cantle is padded behind and then embroidered, giving it a raised three dimensional look.
Hand made silver passementarie. White goat hair.
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.
