sporran definition and meaning

What is a "sporran"?

A sporran is a traditional pouch that is part of Scottish Highland dress. It is made of leather or fur and is worn with a kilt. The sporran is typically worn around the waist and hangs in front of the groin area. It is attached to a leather strap or chain that goes around the waist and is secured by a clasp or buckle. Historically, the sporran was used as a practical item for carrying small items such as coins, as kilts do not have pockets. Today, the sporran is still an important part of Scottish Highland dress and is worn for formal occasions such as weddings, ceilidhs, and other events. There are many different styles of sporran, ranging from simple leather pouches to ornately decorated fur sporrans with tassels and metalwork.
