The timber for this cantle came from an Elm that tree stood in Queens Street Gardens Edinburgh before being bought down in a storm.
Queens St is in Edinburgh’s famous New Town. A Georgian masterpiece, just think which notable residents might have stood in the shade of this tree.
The tassels are hand crochet from horse hair.
The body of the sporran is made of Highland cow. You don’t often see black highland cows, so this is quite special. Highland cows are so iconic so you are really owning a special part of Scotland.
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.
