This smaller, fast-breeding antelope has the impressive scientific name Antidorcas marsupialisand is widely found across the plains of Southern Africa.
The hide comes in a variety of tan to russet and tawny tones, with the distinctive dark brown side slash and white underbelly. It's lyre-shaped horns are similar in both male and female. We use many of these tips in our day sporrans and new kilt pin ranges.
There is however a far-rarer sub-species known as the black springbok, which has far darker hues and a charcoal strip on its flanks.
Sporrans in this hide complement tartans with fawn, greens and rich coffee colours. The gussets and binding are most popular in fine mid-range brown or black nguni hide.
