    Cow hide, about 2mm to 3mm thick and was quite stiff to start with. It’s a lightly dimpled “pull up” leather. The patina and colour should improve greatly with wear and age.

    I'm unfamiliar with the term "pull up" leather. Is that a description of its use?

    It looks like what we might call chap leather (if on the softer side) or latigo leather (the very thick/stiff kind used to make cinch straps for saddles or other load-bearing tack).

    That's a fine looking sporran!

    Pull up leather

    "Pull up leather" is waxed or oiled leather.

    Gorgeous sporran.

    I love the cantle and love that weathered-looking leather. The red backing is a nice touch.

    Well done!

    (It would be wonderful to see it worn with your full outfit.)

    The sporran will get its first outing this weekend. I’ll be sure to get a picture!
