In what may prove to be a turning point for the beleaguered Scottish plastics industry, EU MEPs in Strasbourg have voted to outlaw the traditional sealskin sporran, leaving a gaping commercial hole for manufacturers of synthetic sporrans to fill.

 

MEPs with clearly no sense of the 100 year-old tradition of wearing sealskin sporrans with full Highland dress, including Scotland’s beloved tartan kilts, have sided with the wee cuddly seals to make it illegal to sell sealskin sporrans after this autumn, according to this article in today’s Telegraph.
