* Size - made to your measurements. Sizing guidelines on web site

* Each belt made especially for the customer ordering it -

It is easy for the customer - via the 'additional comments' box going through the checkout - to make small changes and adapt our designs to suit them, e.g. a leather loop, instead of a metal loop on a belt, one instead of two, a longer distance from the last hole to tip etc

COASTERS * plain * celtic * personalised

key fobs
KEY FOBS A gift used daily, reminding someone of you each day

* Round * Oval * Plain * With 'heart' or other ornament * Personalised

SPORRANS Traditional brown & black leather sporrans or coloured leather sporrans

Many tartans exist that a red, green or a blue sporran will complement very nicely. The traditional brown leather sporran and black leather sporran remain best sellers, but customers increasingly order coloured kilt belts and coloured leather sporrans for a more contemporary and stylish look.

* with leather tassles * with silver tassles * no tassles * celtic sporran * teardrop sporran

Our New Sporran Design
teardrop sporran
SP_3, Teardrop' - a new sporran design, is particularly suited to having initials embossed on the 'teardrop', making a perfect '21st' or 'Best Man' gift.

* Personalisation : Make your gift extra special with initials or a word. A house name embossed on a set of coasters can be a much appreciated housewarming present, or initials on a key ring, or perhaps just one coaster with , 'DAD'/'POP', for Father's day. Personalisation from £7.50

* Bespoke: have a design? or looking for a non standard size briefcase? McRostie's will be happy to discuss your requirements.

* Restoration e.g. gun cases, old leather suitcases - revive old treasures.

* Repair Service eg. sporting accessories - return to useful life.

Where the exact colour is important to the customer, he/she can request a colour swatch before ordering….and see the actual colour, not a computer representation of it. The customer also gets the first whiff of the unmistakeable aroma of real leather!

GUARANTEED if you are not delighted with your purchase - please return for full refund (see terms & conditions on website. excl. p&p, bespoke orders)

Our customers are often independent minded - confident in their own judgement, discerning and willingly take the extra time and effort to find just what they want, rather than accept what is on offer. Our aim is to do similar - we take the extra time and make the extra effort to make sure they are not disappointed when they receive their handmade leather gifts from McRostie .
McRostie's combine fine Scottish craftsmanship with the best of British bridle leather to produce a small range of luxury handmade bridle leather accessories - practical, durable and of outstanding quality - as well as value for money. All this from a by-product too!
