Pride and Valor - Exclusive Horse Hair, Fire & Police Sporrans
Who Wears Horse Hair Sporrans?
Once a common element of Victorian highland dress, Horse Hair sporrans (aka: horse haired sporran, pipers sporran, long sporran, sporn, sporan) are now most typically worn by bagpipe bands as part of a 'military' style uniform. Occasionally you will see someone sporting one as part of a very formal, “retro” look.
Is It Real Horse Hair?
From us - absolutely. Our horse hair sporrans are each crafted in Scotland from top quality leather and real horse tail hair. In fact our maker is one of the few under contract to the British military. When you see horse hair sporrans for sale online, it is essential to consider the source as well as the price. If it seems too good to be true..it probably is. Knock-off horse hair sporrans may be made using nylon filament instead of real horse tail, or may be “costume” sporrans - flat panels of cardboard covered in leather or PU leather without an actual bag.
If you have questions about custom horse hair sporrans for your band or personal formal uniform, please call us at 800.368.8633.
