Sporran Makers

Audio Tracks

“Scott’s Sporran Makers” is a small family business specialised in the little fur bags worn above the kilt. A real niche product for which, astonishingly enough, there is a market, because when a Scotsman goes out into the world, he proudly wears his national costume. Still, the order situation used to be a lot better for the Scott family. With the competition from India and Taiwan breathing down their necks, father Malcolm has to haggle for every penny with his customers and still gets the short end of the stick every time. Mary sighs: “We used to sell everything we produced straight away, now most of it is for the stocks. That’s how it is.” The rules of capitalism in a nine-minute nutshell.
