Sporran making in the heart of Perthshire marrying traditional design with modern technology
Presenting Morrison Sporrans
We’ve got a special place for sporrans, it’s how our story started and each one is a wonderful piece of craftsmanship. So it gives us great pleasure to introduce our second sporran maker, Morrison sporrans.
Morrison Sporrans are almost 20 odd years, but don’t let that fool you. Their craft has been past down through the generations and can be traced back to1834. The same methods used by Nicoll Bros. of Bankfoot (who Morrison Sporrans took over from) are used today.
The result? Beautiful sporrans made the traditional way with some lovely modern twists, like using a 30 square foot laser etching table and a similar sized routing table to match. It is really exciting to have these guys on board.

Down to the finest details, our sporrans are handmade in Scotland. Greg has a real passion for his craft and cares deeply where his materials come from, sourcing in Scotland wherever possible.
As he shows you round the workshop he points out leather from a Glasgow tannery, pelts left over from the game industry and even road kill. He’s passionate about using everything, avoiding waste and turning it into something useful. We like the way Greg thinks and what he wants to do in the industry.
New meets old
As we’ve mentioned, Morison Sporrans is relatively new when we’re talking Scotland heritage, forming in 1999. However, incorporating Nicoll Brothers of Bankfoot into their business they draw on nearly 200 years of sporran making experience.
It’s this mix of new and old, which allows Greg and his team to create some incredible sporrans and craft. The tradition and heritage of sporran making is fused with innovations like laser cutting and engraving. It allows them to offer something different, something special, something unique.
We’re excited to explore these possibilities with Greg and his team at Morrison Sporrans over the coming years.
King of Custom
If you're looking for something truly special then you've come to the right place. The team at Morrison sporrans have produced beautiful one of kind pieces from as little as a sketch. Bring your ideas and Morrison sporrans will bring it to life.
This beautiful sporran was hand made to match a wonderful pair of purple brogue boots. It was impossible to source complimentary leather, so the team hand died and textured veg tan leather. The final shape and closing mechanism was the customers design.
