NEW AND EXCLUSIVE!
USA Kilts is proud to introduce our new Viking line of sporrans. Crafted with the highest attention to detail, this bold and rugged two-tone day sporran speaks to the warrior in us all. Two wolves are rendered in energetic Celto-Norse style on the flap. And hidden underneath are two Viking warriors raising a mead toast with drinking horns!
Wolves are an essential part of Viking lore and thought. In Norse legend, Fenrir (or Fenris) was the great primordial wolf. A force of chaos, he was an even match in battle to any of the Gods. Odin, chief of the Aesir, keeps two wolves as battle companions - Geri ("ravenous") and Freki ("greedy"). The famous "Berserkers" (warriors sworn to Odin) wore the skins of either bears or wolves as battle regalia.To the Vikings, the wolf symbolized an indomitable will to survive and the refusal to submit to one’s foes.
Our design, conceived by an American artist of both Celtic & Norse heritage, combines the very best of ancient as well as contemporary art. Our UK-based sporran crafter builds a hefty day sporran - full-grain leather with a brilliant red suede lining. Then he laser-etches the swirling knotwork and fierce beasts into the flap and body. There is no other sporran like this anywhere!
