Meet the Maker
W.E. Scott and Son
W.E. Scott and Son have been making sporrans since 1896. Steven is the 4th member of this family to run the business that has seen it passed from great grandfather, to grandfather to father and now to son.
Many of the techniques used by Steven's great-grandfather are still in use today. Visiting the workshop is an assault on your senses and it feels as through your experiencing a full 100 years of history. Worn work benches, original hand tools, piles of leather, pelts and metalwork all hint at the hands that have learnt and then passed on this awesome craft.
I’m proud to have an amacing sporran from the Artisans of Scottland. I will celebrate your work every time and at all events in the swiss piping scene.
Their help and communication during the building process was perfect. This is one purchase that I made that far exceeded what I ever expected to receive.
Superb range of possibilities and brilliant production by Scottish artisans. Highly recommended on every front.
