Every national costume in the world is complemented with accessories. And one of the main and most important accessories is a bag, pouch, or purse.
The sporran is an important part of a Scottish male folk outfit. It is a belt-pouch worn with a kilt. The purpose of the sporran is to carry things (since the kilt is pocketless) and to keep the kilt in place. This bag is usually worn in the front, but during running, dancing, driving and other activities the pouch can be turned around the waist to hang on the hip. The sporran is attached to the belt with a help of a leather strap or chain. It can be made from various materials: leather, fur, animal skins, and fabric. The sporrans are usually very fine and embellished with metal decorations, tassels, embossing, etc. Often, men made the sporrans themselves because they wanted unicity.
