A sporran is quite simply a pouch which is worn, in Highland costume, hanging from the belt over the front of the kilt. The older sporrans were quite modest objects and ordinarily of leather due to their practical use(i.e. to carry items in). In modern Highland costume and in the uniform of Highland army regiments it has become a highly ornamental or ceremonial with silver or metal rims, and a heavy long backing of horsehair or fur
