What is a Sporran?
The sporran, Scottish Gaelic for “purse”, a traditional part of Scottish Highland dress, is a pouch that performs the same function as pockets on the pocketless kilt. Made of leather or fur, the ornamentation of the sporran is chosen to complement the formality of dress worn with it. Modern use is to hold your phone, flask, and wallet.
Tip of the Day
Never run with a heavy sporran.
Yes this is cheap, and when we say cheap we mean the price not the product.
The Scottish Thistle: The Legend and Meaning
Most people know and can easily recognize the thistle as the symbol of Scotland. Researchers believe that Scots chose the thistle as their first national flower.
Legend has it that a field of thistles saved a party of sleeping Scots warriors from an ambush by Norse invaders. When one of the Norse attackers trod on a thistle field with his bare feet, his cries and screams roused the Scots. The ambush became ineffective, and the Scots defeated the invaders. The Scots’ victory was all thanks to the thistle’s thorns! They then adopted the thistle as the symbol of Scotland. It represents the bravery, devotion, durability, strength, and determination of the Celtic people.
