About Sporran

Complete the traditional Highland dress ensemble by wearing a sporran. Because the kilt doesn't come with pockets, the Scottish man wore the sporran over his groin to hold money and other personal items. Whether you are looking to wear a kilt in honour of your heritage or need it for a cultural event, keep in mind that there are appropriate sporrans for every occasion. On eBay, you can find day, dress, animal mask, and horsehair sporrans, among others in both new and pre-owned conditions. While tradition is tradition and there is a time and place to respect that, there really is no hard and fast rule when it comes to modern-day Highland fashion. Unless you belong to the military or an organization with a particular dress code, use your creativity and imagination to express yourself. It doesn't matter whether you choose to break tradition or following--just remember to wear the sporran.
