In modern Western culture there is a stratosphere of formality structured on the importance of a particular place or situation from casual to formal and several points in between. The same type of stratosphere in traditional Scottish clothing is what gave birth to the semi dress sporran.
Still ornate in appearance, these sporrans are typically less expensive and made of a hair hide rather than the loftier furs used in their parent dress sporrans. Semi dress sporrans usually have three tassels. Many even come with artistic etch work.
Day sporrans are usually made of brown or black leather that tout simple adornment sans-cantle. The closing mechanisms on these sporrans are different than other types. Although they still have tassels, day sporrans are made entirely of leather. The term “day sporran” comes from the 19th Century and simply reflects the fact that this was a workhorse designed to be worn from day-to-day due to their sturdy, leather structure. Formal clothing came with a lofty price tag and would only be worn on special occasions.
There are several other, lesser known varieties of sporrans as well, such as the horsehair sporran, which are worn by traditional Scottish pipe bands to this day. These are usually made of white horse hair and sport two black horse hair tassels. This style was the inverse of the 78th Regiment’s sporrans, which were black with white tassels. The style was designed to distinguish the band. There are also full face sporrans, which display an entire badgers head and facial features as a flap on the top, and hunting sporrans which are designed without tassels for the sake of stealth.
