Meet The Makers: W.E. Scott & Sons


Welcome to the workroom of Edinburgh-based sporran makers, W.E. Scott & Son.

Made in 2009, this documentary captures the threat posed to this small family business by cheap foreign imports. It was nominated for Best Scottish Documentary at the Edinburgh International Film Festival.

Gordon Nicolson Kiltmakers are proud to be one of W.E. Scott & Son's biggest customers. We hope to help them keep making real Scottish sporrans for many, many years to come.
