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.
The tassels are hand made silver passementarie and the body of the sporran is white goat hair.
The quality of these sporrans are akin to luxury handbags, made from Italian shoulder hide leather, tanned using vegetable extract rather than chemicals. The red colour of the leather is inspired by antique military sporrans. The beauty of these sporrans is not just surface deap, the lining is green suede, constrasted with red credit card slots and a pocket for small change, esquisitely crafted. Each sporran comes with a grosgrain and leather belt, finished with hand made brass buckle and belt tip. Gosgrain is a material traditionally used on lapels of dinner jackets, it compleates the sporran with a subtle understaed quality .
