Designed and handmade in Scotland

Sporran Nation produces limited edition, bespoke and commissioned sporrans, bags and accessories.  Sporran Nation takes a Scottish tradition and gives it a contemporary twist, bringing it into the 21st century and providing an alternative that can be worn both casually or formally. Sporran Nation has a particular focus on bespoke ink work and commissions. All pieces are designed and handmade in the Sporran Nation studio and workshop in the North of Scotland.

I’ve now scaled down sporran production so I have more time to concentrate on tattooing, embroidering and larger leather pieces. I have a small collection of sporrans available in the shop.

I continue to teach and run sporran making and leatherwork workshops, so if you want to take part you’ll find details on the courses page.


Choosing to buy handmade in a disposable world makes a statement that quality, craftsmanship and supporting the local economy matter to you. Sporran Nation sporrans and bags are not mass produced or mass consumed, they have been made with time, care and attention by me, for you.”
